SDTN Graduate Training Event Glasgow

The Scottish Drama Training Network held the first of our 2016 Graduate Training Events at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow on Wednesday 25 May 2016.

We invited theatre critic Mark Fisher to deliver a workshop based around his book The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide and our Technical Theatre Skills Officer Abigail McMillan delivered a workshop for actors about working on a professional production. We were delighted to welcome students from Ayrshire College and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, including BA Performance in BSL and English students, to our afternoon of workshops. A Q&A session followed with Andy Arnold, Laura Walshe, Dave Shea and Barry McCall who were the creative team behind the Tron’s new production Shall Roger Casement Hang?

The Students worked on their own concept for an Edinburgh Festival Fringe show and were able to ask our panel of professionals in-depth questions about the industry and their careers to date. The event concluded with a BSL interpreted show of Shall Roger Casement Hang?, both Stephen Clyde and Benny Young delivered an outstanding performance of Peter Arnott‘s writing.

SDTN would like to thank everyone who came along to the event and everyone who helped to make it a success, including Deborah and the team at the Tron Theatre, BSL interpreters Ian, Yvonne and Bruce and our photographer Robin Mitchell.
