How to Book the Job Part 1: Sides

with Miriam Silverman (Bio Below)

When: Tuesday, June 12th, 7-9pm

You got the audition, fantastic.  Now you want to nail it! How are you spending your prep time? How do you bring the work into the room... and let it go? Learn tools and techniques to build your confidence to pave the way for a great audition. Enter the audition room feeling grounded, confident, focused and ready.

In two evening sessions we will explore film and tv auditions from two sides- with prep time and without. It is designed for actors who are actively auditioning or performing. Embodied voice will be integrated into the warm-up followed by individualized coaching.

Tuesday night will focus on how to handle and prep sides given in advance (to be assigned)

Thursday night will focus on cold readings- what to do when asked to read a different role/scene on the spot!
