Award Winning Deaf Actor Jacob Casselden coming to Peterborough

Following hot in the footsteps of Ted Evans and Charlie Swinbourne coming to talk about their careers in writing and film making, Award winning actor and dancer, Jacob Casselden, is coming to Peterborough to deliver acting and drama classes.

Jacob has starred in film and on stage and is well respected - winning Best International Deaf Male Actor award at the Milan Festival Internazionale di Cinema E Video Sordo, for his role in the film Nectar and shortlisted for his role in Tribes in London's West End in 2010. (see video below)

The class dates are yet to be arranged - but keep checking PDDCS news for updates.

There will be an announcement soon on PDDCS plans to make film to enter into Young DeafFest 2013 and how to get involved.
