Cold readings are open to all and we’d love for you to join us!
What is a “Cold Reading”?
Our “cold” readings, by no means, are considered formal auditions, however it is one way our directors are able to assess whether you might fit the part of a specific character for future readings. The process usually includes a gathering of those who are interested in reading in front of a small audience where directors are present.
The Nerja Players meet on 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month between October and April at the premises of Nerja Bridge Club, Calle Castilla Perez 1, Nerja, 29780 Look for the BLUE entrance door. We are between Salon de Juegos and Nerja Realty. View map here:
