Written by a professional playwright
Performed by our Acting for New Writing Students
The most exciting and unique opportunity we believe that Caspa Arts has to offer, and what sets us a part from other actor training schemes is The Show.
Every term ends with a new show written specifically by a professional playwright for the Acting For New Writing Course to be performed at a London venue.
This opportunity allows our students to invite industry professionals to see their performance in a role written specifically for them as part of a world premiere of a brand new play.
At Caspa Arts, we wanted to make sure we were contributing towards the industry with our new talent, new creatives and new work. Each of our plays have a chance for life outside of the school, one of the benefits of our industry professional teaching staff. We want there to be a connection between these original shows and work in a professional capacity.
Our biggest success story so far would be our original production of Squad Goals. This play went on to be performed at the Mercury Theatre & Queens Theatre Hornchurch scratch nights, where we were lucky enough to gain interest from the Park Theatre. The development of this play is currently supported by Queens Theatre Hornchurch to be performed at the Park Theatre to producers, programmers & artistic directors towards the end of 2020. Three students have been offered the paid R&D phase at the Queens Theatre Hornchurch and all students will be invited to audition for the professional showcase at the Park.
