Sedos Summer Season
Authors include JOHN GODBER, BRUCE NORRIS & QUENTIN TARANTINO
A week of workshops, performances and events across four venues.
Watch, learn, try something new or just have fun
An exciting summer season featuring a week of workshops, performances and events in central London venues — watch, learn, try something new or just have fun. Catch all our shows for just £15 (£12.50 members) - it's the perfect theatrical social!
We look forward to welcoming audiences to the Bridewell for our Summer Season week. These shows are all being created with limited rehearsal time and resources, so will not be fully polished performances, but a chance to sample black box, workshop-style theatre.
Bridewell Theatre, Sunday 12 July, 7.30pm

Ballroom Dance For Actors Bishopsgate Institute
Sunday 12 July, 11am-4.30pm
Whether you are a trained dancer or not, this workshop will demystify ballroom dance so that in future you can use it to support your acting choices rather than being a barrier. Participants will be taught basic steps, hold and movement around the floor before moving onto acting exercises while dancing.
New Life Into Tired Songs Bishopsgate Institute
Saturday 18 July, 11am-4.30pm
This workshop will help singers refresh much-loved but perhaps over-worked songs. We will take an acting approach to the text and its delivery, to help singers explore new ways of delivering songs they probably know well, with a view to broadening their audition and other performance choices.
