The Actors Centre

Audition Intensive

WHAT IS IT? A workshop designed to give you lots of practice in all sorts of audition situations. HOW WILL IT WORK? We will be working in a small group on a quick-fire mix of as many different types of auditions as possible - from monologues to improvisations, scenes from classic plays, TV drama scenes, sitcom scenes and commercial or corporate scripts. There will be some work prepared in advance and some cold readings too. This will be an extremely practical and lively workshop with much more doing than talking, with an aim of losing your inhibitions and facing your fears, and getting you feeling confident and ready to tackle whatever a real audition situation might throw at you. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? Previous participants have reported feeling much more "ready for anything" in auditions which have followed attending this workshop, and we will also have a chance to work through some of our audition fears and hang-ups in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere. Participant Price: £35, Observer Price: £15.
