Tales Retold’s Cassie Hodges and James Stone visit High Storrs School, Sheffield (James’ alma mater) to chat to Y11 and Y12 Performing Arts students about the casting and auditioning processes. Three of the students later observed the Sheffield auditions and even got the chance to read – impressive stuff too!
The hope is that High Storrs students will attend rehearsals and follow the process from casting to performance.
With Jochen Kortlaender and Lyndsey McLellan of Assist Sheffield.
