audition imageWant to become more confident in your auditions? In this 6 week course led by Director of Education, Kaley Morrison, explore  audition preparation through the lens of Michael Shurtleff’s highly regarded 12 Guideposts. Students will participate each week in mock auditions and receive feedback based on the methods in Shurtleff’s book, Audition

Work will include improving cold reading skills and choosing and crafting audition monologues (for contemporary, classical or in preparation for a musical theatre audition, as each student chooses).

Students should obtain and read Michael Shurtleff’s book, Audition, as well as prepare a one minute audition monologue prior to the first class.
