Industry Professionals Including Rosalie Craig and Hadley Fraser Set to Lead Workshops at St. James Studio

The St. James Studio will host a variety of workshops and masterclasses led by industry professionals including Rosalie Craig and Hadley Fraser. Each specially designed workshop will focus on a different theatre craft, with subjects ranging from acting through song, to playwriting, to speaking Shakespeare.

Due to the nature of employing working actors, the workshop leaders may be subject to change at any time. Somebody of equal ability will provide replacement if this occurs, and participants will also be offered the opportunity to transfer to an alternative workshop if space allows.
