Rehearsal & Performance with Caroline Bell-Booth

Rehearsal & Performance logo

The Rehearsal & Performance series provides regular opportunities for directors and actors to practise their craft and communication. Each workshop brings in an experienced moderator to guide participants as they explore a workshop scene in groups (one director, two actors) in a safe and non-pressured environment.

Join us in Auckland for our first workshop of 2021 with director Caroline Bell-Booth.



Caroline Bell-Booth started out her professional career creating theatre, before moving into television where she directed on Shortland Street, followed by blocks of the hit Australian show 800 Words and was head-hunted by Australia’s Channel 7 show Home and Away as a recurring guest director. Following this she joined Channel 7’s drama Between Two Worlds.

Within NZ, Caroline has been lead director on the final two seasons of TV3’s hit show Westside, and was director on TVNZ’s crime-drama The Bad Seed.

Most recently, Caroline joined the second season of the German-NZ co-production The Gulf, where she directed the finale tele-feature episode. This will go to air later in 2021, and will be available on Netflix AUS/NZ. Currently, Caroline is shooting Power Rangers which will screen on Nickelodeon and Netflix later in 2021.


Selected directors and actors will be expected to do some script prep beforehand. DEGNZ will provide the scene at least one week in advance.
