One-Day FREE Audition Workshop

Do you already have some acting skills under your belt, but you just can't seem to get cast in anything?  There are so many things that can keep you from winning a role that you don't even realize, from the outfit you wear to the way you walk into the room.  In some cases, the director has already decided not to cast you before you even read for him!

During this workshop, you'll learn a lot of important tips to boost your confidence and give you a major edge over the competition.

This workshop will cover:

-Auditioning with a scene partner
-How to craft a monologue
-Your outfit, what you should and shouldn't wear
-Slating for the camera
-How to approach "cold reading" a script you've never read before
-The difference between TV, Film, Commercial and Industrial auditions
-And more!

This workshop is free to attend, and everyone will get to participate in the Q&A session, but for just $20.00, you will also get to perform an audition piece on-camera, personally receive in-depth critique and direction from the instructor, and then receive a private link to view your footage on Youtube!
