Hi guys, I'm directing a play called 'The Tree of Shoes' for an audience of 7-10 year olds, as the final production of my Masters in Drama at Unviersity Glamorgan. I am seeking an actress to play the part of Welsh Grandma - needs to have a Welsh accent, but speaks English. I'll be rehearsing the last two weeks of August, the final week of August is the crucial one for this character. Anyone interested?

Loved 'The Tree of Shoes'. Congrats and well done.
I'd love to be involved-I have recently finished "The Laramie Project" where I played numerous characters, all with varying American accents, and one woman aged late 70's-early 80's. I am very good with accents and characterisation. My native accent is light Cardiff. My Spotlight PIN is
All the best,
I am really interested in being part of your production. I have just today finished a run of a children's play with Everyman Theatre (Pinocchio at St Fagins) and have just loved the experience, it's been such fun! I am also a teacher and workshop leader so have plenty of experience of working with children of different ages and abilities. I am available all of August except 9th-12th then the 31st.
I have a Welsh accent but have a strong ear for different regions so should be fine.
Please feel free to contact me on my email then I can send you my CV/headshot etc.
All the best
