NEXT TERM AUCKLAND ACTORS LAB STUDIO MONDAYS Starts 8 September with Peter Feeney - Four places left!
They are looking for four actors to complete the Monday group starting 8 September. Info attached.
So we would like to give a shout out to all our super clients and say that we appreciate you, your performances and #LoveYaWork - too many to name individually but you're all special in your own way. Have a great Monday and keep doing what you enjoy.
Thanks to Gregg Apps Casting for reminding us that sometimes a little love goes a long way!
Very sad to hear about the recent passing of industry icons; James Garner, Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams.
May they rest in peace.
Actually, they're vital. In a time when competition is fierce for even an audition and roles are harder to come by, it has never been more important to have not only good headshots but ones that are up to date. There are plenty of actors vying for the roles you want and without good photos to show Casting Directors, as well as a full and healthy CV with training and skills up to date, you're on a serious back footing.

And don' forget...getting good shots together can make all the difference and they can pay for themselves!

Kiwi characters that will have you laughing in the aisles.
"classic Roger Hall stuff...New Zealand characters he portrays so well...good fun and lots of laughs...just what the doctor ordered" The Press
"A Shortcut to Happiness... brilliantly proves what a splendid craftsman Roger Hall is." - Theatreview
The play centres around Ned, quietly adjusting to retirement and life on his own, after the death of his wife, and Natasha, a Russian folk dancer, just arrived in New Zealand and looking to start a new life.
A variety of colourful characters come to the dancing class - including two friends Janet and Laura, who come to the dance class for fun and a change from golf or cruising. Then there's a Coral who would very much like to meet another man, and two serial-class-takers husband and wife, Bev and Ray. who come to dancing classes, recorder classes, fitness classes or any classes they can find in their very busy schedule! Along comes Sebastian, who is a suave, ex-army, charmer who has quite an impact on the class.
This warm, funny play shows that love and adventure can come at any age.
The title, A SHORTCUT TO HAPPINESS, is derived from a statement by Vicki Baum that "There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them." Combine that quote with Roger Hall's participation in folk dancing classes and, as the author himself said, "I can feel a play coming on."
