Welcome to ActorsPractice.org.


The ActorsPractice.org site is intended to support actors working on their technique on an ongoing basis. It is meant as a way of organizing and advertising events to support actors in their craft. If you are in between projects and just want to get your hands dirty, this is a good place to see if there is an event for you.

You can sign up for scenes they would like to study, make announcements of upcoming shows you are in, post audition notices that you would like to share, etc. Members can upload audio, video, and images to document performances or whatever.  You can discuss any item on the site.  Use the "Add item" link to post something to the site.  Choose "Topic" to add things like events or your bio.  You can then choose from topic types such as "Performance" or "Class" to get more specific.

You can browse the site without registering.  Adding items or editing them requires you to become a member.

The site also support groups.  Right now there is only one for Wellington New Zealand, but feel free to email us using the Contact link at the top each page to request your own group.
