BA Acting Showcase 2021

Most Drama Schools have re-thought their Showcases in this extremely challenging time for students in their graduating year. Drama Centre has decided to focus on creating well-produced digital video material that the students can deploy online in their Showreels, and share with agents and casting directors.


In the absence of a live theatre audience, the material has been chosen, rehearsed and directed with a heightened awareness of the art of acting for camera. Think of Showcase as a festival of short stories, as a veritable carnival of characters materialise briefly to play out their drama before fading and giving way to the next compelling scenario.
