It’s warm up North: training and opportunities for actors living in North East England

Hulsmeier, Adelle (2020) It’s warm up North: training and opportunities for actors living in North East England. In: Actors' and Performers' Yearbook 2021 Essential Contacts for Stage, Screen and Radio. Bloomsbury. ISBN 9781350159471

Item Type: Book Section


Overcoming the stigma that suggests the North East of England offers limited opportunities to actors, both trained and un-trained, is difficult. At a time when travel and movement is significantly restricted, this article is timely in putting some of the more progressive opportunities offered in the North East of England on the map. It offers an overview of some of the exciting and progressive opportunities that are currently offered in this region, particularly Newcastle and Sunderland, hopefully helpful to today’s aspirant actors when thinking about the extent of opportunities that may exist ‘closer to home’ or that may be worth re-locating for.
