oneACTS 2018 – Actors

Fancy acting in a short play? Then the cornerHOUSE oneACTS 2018 could be just the thing for you.

Whether you are an experienced actor or a complete novice, there could be a place for you in one of the oneACTS which will be performed at the cornerHOUSE from Monday, April 23 to Saturday April 28.

The festival, now in its 12th year, was launched to promote original playwriting. The plays are only 15 to 30 minutes long, which means that it’s a great opportunity to be involved in a show without a heavy time commitment, but you will still be able to enjoy the buzz of being part of a large, dynamic team of playwrights, directors, actors and crew, all working towards providing a week-long feast of original, quality-driven entertainment.

So why not come to our open auditions  on Wednesday, January 31 at 7.30pm or Sunday, February 4 at 2pm to see what it is all about?

For more information about the oneACTS festival and how to take part, please go to our oneACTS 2018 homepage.

New Initiatives Grant: The cornerHOUSE has successfully applied for a New Initiatives grant from Kingston Arts to put towards a series of workshops or master classes for amateur musicians. Through the terms of the grant, professional musicians who are performing locally for Thames Concerts in Surbiton will, as part of their contract, give coaching sessions to young performers at the cornerHOUSE.

The next New Initiatives event will be a Strings Workshop on 18 February. Participants will receive one-to-one coaching from professional violinist Jack Liebeck and pianist Annabel Thwaite, and perform a piece if they wish in a short concert at the end of the afternoon.

More details about the event can be found here. More about the New Initiatives grant as a whole, can be found on the Your Kingston ‘New Initiatives’ Grant page of the website, under the ‘inHOUSE events tab at the top of this page or here.
