How to Book the Job: Audition Sides and Cold Reads
Part 1: Audition Sides, Tuesday, June 12th from 7PM - 9:30PM
Part 2: Cold Reads, Thursday, June 14th from 7PM - 9:30PM
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!

Owning the Space: How to Bring Dramatic Tension to Life in Your Audition
Wednesday, June 13th, from 1PM-3PM
An actor’s job is to bring the story on the page into human form, in time and space. In this workshop, we will experiment with the relationship between the dramatic tension (or comic tension) in the text and your choices of time, space and attention in the audition room. This workshop is geared to actors who are currently auditioning. You will be asked to bring in a current audition piece of your choice and we will explore your use of attention, time and space in order to heighten your presence in the room, so you can completely own your audition, from start to finish. I will share tools I use before I enter the room and while I am auditioning to create a heightened suspension of time and space, so that the CD is drawn into my audition and curious about me and about the story that's unfolding, moment by moment.
