Patsy offers advice to Mandy actors

Alpha’s PATSY PRINCE took part in the first Mandy Speed Mentoring Event this week. It proved a great success. Here is one of her soundbites: "If you really want to be a successful actor then apply yourself to that goal. Be determined, focused, professional, bold, assertive, network and no matter what anyone says, do it or die trying. If you don't feel like this you should probably do something else."

David begins Merchant of Venice with Award-Winning Illyria

David Sayers stars as Shylock which in The Merchant of Venice which opens tonight at the Trebah Garden in Cornwall. 

In this classic Shakespearean comedy, the wealthy Antonio borrows money from Shylock, and both are so confident about his paying it back that they jokingly adopt a ridiculous agreement: that Antonio will give Shylock a pound of his flesh should he default. Then events conspire against him so that he cannot repay the loan. What transpires is a witty, romantic and thought-provoking tale. 

David is thrilled to return to outdoor theatre company Illyria who have won 4 international "Best Performance" awards and attracted numerous "5-star" and "Critics' Choice" reviews for their lively clarity of Shakespeare's plays.

Break a leg David!

Angus shoots short film with Jane Asher!

Our Angus Kennedy was recently shooting a short film called One Track Mind with acclaimed director Kat Philipou Cutis.

The film is a three hander with Angus, Bill Fellows and Jane Asher at the helm. In it, two strangers meet on a train and launch into a flirtatious conversation about Sex, much to the embarrassment of those around them. But all is not what it seems!

Curtis's previous film Marriage has won 30 awards on the short film circuit, and we wish the team behind One Track Mind every success!
