Le Grand Restaurant

Stage adaptation by Emilie Guillot
It’s just a typical, ordinary evening at a 3 stars French restaurant, but the cast of characters on display here finds the terrain anything but easy to navigate. Hilarious French comedy with English simplified surtitles!
HK Theatre Association Limited
HKTA conducts an array of instructional training workshops in a wide variety of modern creative genres including: acting, dancing, vocal training and writing. Courses will be conducted in a variety of languages including English, and French to all, Adults, Teenagers and Kids.
The Association helps actors to gain control over their work, teaching them to rely on their own instincts, imagination and choices. Our scene study and improv classes produce confident actors who bring an original voice to every production.In fact, the most distinctive thing about one of our members is how different each one is. We train actors to speak in their own artistic voice—producing characters that are rich and layered. They become the artist they always wanted to be. Theater, television and film are all collaborative mediums, so an actor must work well with other actors, directors, casting directors and many more. Our technique trains them to do just that! That’s why we love to work with HKTA actors-students!
