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.”

“Everything I wanted from a workshop…Flawlessly organised and professionally run.”
“Thank you so much for letting me into the secret life of the casting director.”
“The workshop was very helpful, great tips, and it was so much fun! Oh how we laughed!!”
“A great opportunity to meet a casting director with this experience and knowledge and to get her views on auditioning today."
“I really enjoyed the workshop. It was very informative and inspirational, especially for someone like me who has just left drama school as is trying to find their feet!”
“A small group that meant we all got time and attention. I learnt invaluable lessons from this and will definitely be booking more with Ascend!”
“I had a meeting with a new agent and was able to let her know about meeting Gemma Hancock and she was impressed and signed me up :)”
We promise to help and support aspiring and professional actors throughout their careers in any way we know how. Simple.
“The Workshop was really enjoyable and it totally changed the way I will approach a script especially audition scenes. I would 100% recommend to anybody who is considering attending.”
