Theatre performers hold workshops.

Byline: By Karen Price Western Mail

Have you ever fancied becoming an actor or working in television? A series of workshops run by professionals from the stage and small screen are being held in Cardiff. Ben Harlow, who has appeared in Mamma Mia! and is currently performing in Beauty And The Beast; Craige Els, who is about to perform the Robbie Williams character in the Take That musical Never Forget; and Lewis Vaughan-Jones, news correspondent from ITV Wales, are all involved in The Green Room at The Gate Arts Centre in Roath, Cardiff.

The Green Room is a new series of workshops that put acting enthusiasts in touch with those working in the industry. They are a continuation of Actorsworkshop, the usual sessions held mid-week at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff but will provide a direct link to those in the business. The series kicks off on Saturday with Harlow, who is currently appearing in Beauty And The Beast at the New Theatre and is no stranger to touring across the UK and the globe.

Alongside Jamie Lee, Actorsworkshop's artistic director, he will be running the masterclass introducing the entertainment industry.

On July 21, Els, from the brand new musical Never Forget, which premieres at the Wales Millennium Centre this month, will conduct his masterclass.

People will have the opportunity to grill him on anything to do with the acting business, including theatre schools, agents and the West End.

This season of The Green Room will conclude on the August 11 with a talk from ITV Wales news correspondent Lewis Vaughan-Jones. He will join The Green Room team to discuss his experience in TV.

David Wilson, Actorsworkshop's business director, said, "It is essential for us to provide our members with the opportunity to learn from and work with those involved in the industries we support. Actorsworkshop is very pleased to have Ben Harlow, Craige Els and Lewis Vaughan-Jones working with us."

The Green Room series is at The Gate Arts Centre in Roath, Cardiff, from Saturday. They run from 9.30am to noon. There will also be sessions on July 21 and August 11. For further details or to book a place, email
