In 2016, Arion Productions Ltd launched a series of masterclasses for theatre professionals and those in/considering performing arts related training to provide expert ‘one day only’ masterclasses in much-sought-after specialist fields with some of the UK’s finest theatre, film, television and radio professionals at affordable rates.
Our venue is fully accessible for wheel-chair users and we do everything we can to facilitate those with specific needs. We offer two types of ticket for our events, either as a participant or an observer. Participants will work one-on-one with our guest artists, whilst participants can observe and take notes.
Afterwards, we give the opportunity to have a group photograph with our special guest artist and a Q&A sessions open to all too.
Masterclasses have been hosted by two time Oliver Award winner, Jenny Galloway (Acting Through Song Masterclass), multi-award-winning producer Danielle
Tarento (Auditioning for Musical Theatre Masterclass), West End leading lady, director and champion of new Musical Theatre, Julie Atherton, long-standing War Horse and Goodnight Mister Tom puppeteer, Abigail Matthews (West End Puppetry Masterclass), West End legend and leading-lady, Anna Jane Casey (Acting Through Song Masterclass) and television, film and stage actress Annette Badland (Acting For Stage and Screen) and writer, actor, producer and broadcaster Mark Gatiss (Discussions for Actors and Writers).
Please Visit Previous Masterclasses for more information and photographs from these fantastic masterclasses.
All profits raised from the Portfolio Masterclass series will be invested by Arion Productions into future opportunities in their upcoming productions to give practical and paid experience.
Artistic Director of Arion Productions Andrew Keates comments,
“Arion Productions is passionate about providing opportunities for actors who want to invest in themselves and develop their craft. As a company we are fortunate to have connections with some of the finest professionals working within our industry and it has been a delight seeing actors transform in an afternoon by being given the chance to work with such a high caliber of stand-out artists”
