The First Rehearsal Room for 2015


We were thrilled to host the Rehearsal Room last Saturday 21st February in Auckland. Moderated by accomplished actor and director Rene Naufahu, four directors and eight actors came together and rehearsed scenes. Rene bought his experience as both an actor having worked with some heavy weight Hollywood directors and his own strengths as a director to guide the directors and actors through the workshop.


Some feedback from the participants:

“I’ve learnt a lot and it pushed me outside of my comfort zone”

“The guys running it were very hands on and kept us on track. Lots of wise words, interesting working with different people”

“It was really useful in getting me to get something on the page and then off the page”


A huge thanks to those who participated, DEGNZ members  Jane Sherning Warren, James Solomon, Adam Fresco and Samuel Shelton as our directors. And of course from Actors Equity Stuart Shacklock, Daniel Pujol, Jodie Hilcock, Tony Buckler, Carl Drake, Kate Castle, Brett Gribble and Mary McCormick.


There are six more Rehearsal Rooms throughout the year and it is a great opportunity to practice your craft and see scenes come to life. You can register your interest in participating on eventbrite here and follow us on facebook here.
