Do you want to improve your audition and performance technique? This 5-hour intensive focuses on bringing each student’s audition and performance material to the next level. Walk out the door with a monologue and song ready to share, and technique that will carry you to the next level. Students of all levels are welcome!
What to expect: Our goal is to bring each student’s audition and performance material to the next level, whether that means you are working on pieces for the first time or polishing work you have already started to develop. To achieve this, students will receive individual coaching, a crash course on resume & headshot preparation, as well as work in a group to develop an actor’s warm-up and overall performance technique. The workshop will conclude with students performing their pieces to the group as mock-auditions.
