How To Book Your Next Audition

This hands-on workshop setting will allow participants to work individually with top Casting Directors on their audition technique.
Participants will prepare their own material and will have ten minutes with a Casting Director to perform and receive feedback on their "audition".
Casting Directors will address Headshot and resumes as well as performance and give substantive feedback and/ or re-direction in order to best prepare you for your next real-life audition.
Material must be no longer than two minutes, either a monologue or a scene. If bringing a scene, please bring an extra copy of the sides for the Casting Director and your headshot and resume.
Bringing your own material ensures you can be as prepared as possible for this audition technique master class.It also allows the Casting Director to see how you would cast yourself and give you personal advice.
This is your opportunity to work out with some of the best Casting Directors that you might otherwise not have access to.
