Whether you are preparing for your first audition, or your 91st, DreamWrights’ Audition Workshops are a valuable way to understand how to make the most of your time in the audition room. In a supportive environment, participants can expect to learn tools and techniques to strengthen confidence and physical and vocal choices for auditions. They will leave feeling empowered to give their personal best at each audition.
Even those with extensive performance experience will benefit from the audition workshops. Each actor will receive personal feedback to strengthen his/her auditions. Learn practical techniques for making the strongest physical, vocal, and character choices.
Although sixteen year old Dana Cutti is not new to the stage, she registered early for an Audition Workshop. “I decided to take the workshop because I know that when I’m doing a show the most stressful part is the audition. I know the audition never really shows what I can do because I am so nervous! I thought this audition workshop might help with my nerves.” She says she hopes to learn to manage her anxiety so her talent can shine through.
These workshops give insight into how to captivate the audience and perform with confidence and will take the “mystery” out of the audition process. Each workshop will cover audition do’s and don’ts. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a mock audition with a short monologue or scene.
Taught by Laurie Riffe, DreamWrights’ Director of Artistic Programming, these workshops are offered in four different age appropriate groups. Riffe offers, “Audition workshops will be taught in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with a focus on learning and fun. Don’t miss this important opportunity to build your tools as an actor!”
Workshops will allow all participants time to practice their audition techniques in a positive and supportive setting. Since each workshop will offer unique dynamics and practical experience, participants may choose to register for more than one audition workshop date. Space is limited.
