Event description

Description

The ACTORS JAM team are back for the #MyVoiceMattersToo Summer Showcase to be held at the well-known creative space for budding talent Ovalhouse, on Saturday 26th August 2017 at 7.30pm.

Actors Jam is a BAME platform, built to tackle the lack of diverse representation in the creative industry. We are dedicated to creating a safe, supportive platform for young actors/writers to share and test out new work written by them ranging from monologues, duologues & short plays to an encouraging, supportive audience & industry professionals.

The #MyVoiceMattersToo programme is a FREE five week development course for Actors & Writers aged 16-25. Through a range of one to one sessions, 15 minute short pieces are created from scratch or developed further for those with existing work.

Starting with a concept for a monologue, short play or duologue, at each rehearsal participants will be given feedback, direction & support with their pieces from the Actors Jam team. Exploring a range of techniques such as performance, clarity, script development & character development the focus is taking the idea from page and executing the idea to stage.

Before applying to be a part of the Summer Showcase it is imperative that you are available for a minimum of 5 rehearsals with 14/08/17, 18/08/17 & 21/08/17 being compulsory rehearsals.

Once you have booked your time slot you will be required to email a copy of your piece with "Your full name & play/monologue title" in the subject line to ActorsJam@hotmail.com by Thursday 22nd June to secure your place and to be given a time slot.

Failure to send this may cause your slot to be allocated to another auditionee, please note if you are auditioning with a duologue/short play you are expected to provide the actors & they are required to attend the audition.

No previous experience is required to showcase your work at the Actors Jam showcase, we want to hear from passionate, bold, young people aged 16-25 that are eager to share new innovative work in a safe creative environment built for young people.

The purpose of the My Voice Matters Programme is to develop an existing idea and put it on stage, so unfinished work is welcome.

*YOUR PIECE MUST BE WRITTEN BY YOU*

The #MVMT programme develops confidence in young people enabling them to use their voice & showcase innovative work that reflects & represents the hidden talent within the BAME community.
