This four week course will take the mystery and fear out of the audition process. It is a full exploration into the “nitty gritty” of the audition process allowing actors to have more confidence and make bolder, wiser decisions in their quest to “get the part”. Three different age groups each will explore the Audition from casting calls to callbacks, to cast lists. Actors will leave the class with options for monologues and songs to use in real auditions as well. This is a great confidence builder for actors of all ages. Great for seasoned audition veterans and rookies alike!
