|Hamlet in Rehearsal|
EllieÂ Zeegen, a member of the BSA andÂ Artistic Director of The Actors' Temple, has asked me to circulate an invitation to all BSA members to an innovative open rehearsal for their forthcoming production of Hamlet. Full details are below
We would like to offer members of the BSA the opportunity to come and watch the cast of The Actors' Temple Hamlet in their Final Week of Rehearsals (28 Nov-2 Dec 2011) at The Mermaid Theatre, London.
Arguably the most famous play in the world with several productions staged in the UK alone every year and numerous productions all over the world, the play provokes a never ending tirade of questions and theories.Â
We have decided therefore to open up our final week of rehearsals to an audience, allowing anybody who has ever loved this play, to experience a company of actors confront these challenges and questions head on as they make their final approach towards opening night.Â
From a delightful studio space at the Mermaid Theatre, you will be able to watch every moment of rehearsal and take part in a 45 minute Q&A at the end (of each day) with all the company.
We see open rehearsals as an important step forward in the relationship between an audience and cast. Â We hope that opening Hamlet up before the official â€˜runâ€™ will pave the way for a far more open, inclusive and fulfilling approach to theatre.
Background: Since 2003 The Actors' Temple has gained a solid reputation from the actors who have come through our doors. Â A place where they can be themselves, experiment and work at their acting in a supported way. Â
In 2006 we finally acquired our very own studio on Warren Street, enabling us to establish our actor-trainingÂ
program and further develop and deepen our understanding of acting. Â The result is a company of actors who have all trained under one roof; who share not only a technical approach but also a mind set and attitude towards their work. Â

The Mermaid Theatre is a short walk from Blackfriars and St Paulâ€™s stations.

We very much look forward to seeing you there and wish you a wonderful rest of your Summer
