Network News June 2010 May / June and Beyond ACT In a few months time the next group of Actors will be Graduating from the two year Actor Training at the Academy of Creative Training in Brighton. We have our Trinity exams coming up in May and then showcases in London on the 8th July and then in Brighton on the 16th of July. As industry professionals, you would all be able to come to the Brighton Showcase if you wanted. It has been a wonderful, exciting, intense and exhaust- ing process as I'm sure a lot of you know! It feels very strange that it is now com- ing to an end. We are all filled with a mixture of excitement and fear at the thought of entering into the professional world. Lets hope all our hard work will pay off!
