Self Care and Survival for the Actor with Nicholas Hale

Do you feel stuck or frustrated as an actor? Do you feel like you’ve hit a wall with your career? Or are you just starting out and unsure which way to go in the acting world?

If you answer “yes’ to any of these questions, then Self-care and Survival for the Actor is for you! At drama school or in acting lessons, you’re not always taught how to survive and look after yourself as an actor. This is a short course that teaches you how to practice better self-care – something we all need at the moment.

Learn how to:

• Reconnect with what made you want to be an actor in the first place.

• Advice on agents, drama schools and further acting courses.

• Who to write to and how to take control of your career!

• What to read and watch to reinvigorate and inspire

• The importance of R&R and more importantly how to achieve this effectively.

• How to form support networks and where to find the other creatives.

• Find self-empowerment: write that monologue, one-woman show, play or screenplay that you’ve always wanted to write.

• How to take better care of yourself as an actor with simple actions.

All of this and more in a course taught by Nicholas Hale, an actor, writer and acting tutor who trained at RADA and has many, many years of experience. Nicholas has a wealth of acting experience and has also written for Lime Pictures, Eon Productions (the makers of James Bond) and BBC Radio. Nicholas has just written a new play, We’ll Always Have Paris.
