Professional actor, ex-Testbourne student and WADS alumnus Ben Riddle, who ran an acting masterclass workshop in Whitchurch

Ben Riddle’s first acting master class workshop for WADS attracted 20 participants – but it’s not too late to sign up for the second and final session next week. Local actor Noel Privett describes the workshop…

Professional actor, ex-Testbourne student and WADS alumnus Ben’s workshop in Whitchurch yesterday (1 May 2012) was attended by 20 people.

We played games which helped us focus on our task and work as a team. Some of these explored how the dynamics change as people share dialogue and stage space. They also allowed for lots of laughing. It was astonishing to see how a performance could change just by walking around being led by your chest instead of your belly or head or feet.


Ben’s second workshop (on Tuesday 8 May at 8pm at Testbourne Community Suite) will move on to look at interpreting a text, working out what is being said and how best to put it across. Everyone is welcome to attend, even if you were not able to make the first one.

Visit, or WADSweb on Facebook, or phone 892514 if you want more information or to confirm you are coming. And remember, you don’t have to be a member of WADS to take part.
