The University of Kent Players are extremely excited to be back with social readthrough events throughout November. We’ll be providing both in-person and virtual sessions to get together and get theatrical!
Our readthroughs are an excellent opportunity to meet up with fellow actors and theatre enthusiasts, and make new friends from across the University. You don’t need any previous experience to get involved; just be welcoming, friendly and supportive of your peers!
