Musical Theatre Auditioning Workshop
So much of a potential career in Musical Theatre depends on auditioning (leading up to it, being in the actual room, and dealing with everything after the actual day of your audition). While ultimately, the performer has no real control over whether they are cast, there are some things that the informed performer can be aware of, develop, and hone.
1. Have a 12-16 bar cut of your favorite song, we will provide the accompanist.
2. Bring headshot if you have one.

Acting for TV/Film
There are huge differences for an actor performing on a stage to those of an actor playing to a camera. This class aims to inform the student of the main technique shifts involved in transitioning from theatre to screen, how to begin pursuing a career in tv/film, and the differences “in the room”.
1. What you think your basic character "type" is (ie "hardworking student council president", "star quarterback", "rebel"), and
2. 3 tv shows you see that character "type" on right now.
3. Headshot if you have one
4. See sides from "High School Musical", look over and familiarize with just the FIRST PAGE of "Scene 2" aka "E.J.-Ashlyn"? The boys will read "E.J." and girls "Ashlyn".
Sunday November 18th
4:00pm – 6:00pm
