At Sonder, we strive to help give actors get as many opportunities as possible. Yet in an ever changing industry, we understand that it’s difficult for actors to always be on their game in the slow periods between castings.

That’s where our workshops come in.

Our workshops not only give you the opportunity to get in front of high level industry professionals, but also giving an invaluable insight into their world. With a dedicated Q&A session in each workshop, we encourage actors to get into the thick of it and squeeze every drop of information out that they can. We want you to leave the room on top of the world and ready to smash your next casting!

By booking your space on a Sonder workshop, you will get to spend 2 hours with a leading industry professional, listening to their advice, asking them questions, performing directly to them and getting specialised feedback for you as an actor.

Our workshops are open to all actors! Please see information about our workshops below…
