Actors Centre North-East.
Originally part of the London based network of Actors Centres, The
Actors Centre in Newcastle became an independent organization six
its re-launch, the Centre has striven to provide a focus for the
region's professional performers, where they can develop and enhance
their skills. Although the North-East has produced many fine actors over
the years, and the level of activity in both theatre and media has been
considerable, the majority of the region's actors have not been trained
in the formal sense.
In an industry which is changing as fast as today's
entertainment industry it is essential that the skills of performers are
constantly upgraded, to better serve the requirements of broadcasters
and theatre producers.
