What do I wear?… What should I sing?… Why didn’t they pick me?!
Auditioning can be an intimidating process. Actors attend many auditions in the course of their career and often leave not knowing what the casting team thought. This workshop gives the aspiring actor an opportunity to present their audition material in an encouraging setting and get feedback to help improve future auditions.
Participants will get an overview of the audition process and insight into the minds of a director and casting committee. They will have the opportunity to audition for a “mock-show,” with the benefit of feedback from the director.
