Welcome to the first actors company that aims to holistically support professional actors through workshops with the leading casting directors, screen directors and theatre directors.
“I found working with the Ascend Actors Group to be a creative, stimulating and rewarding experience. Their approach is ethical, professional and imaginative and the interaction thus possible within our workshop was of a high calibre.”
