The Actors Centre

Audition M.O.T

WHAT IS IT? A workshop for those who haven't auditioned for a while, who want to scrutinise their own process, and for those who want to know what a director is really thinking when they're casting a play. HOW WILL IT WORK? The workshop will explore how to negotiate auditions for new writing and contemporary plays. It will consist of exercises, role play and scene work from contemporary plays, with an opportunity to audition and receive feedback. We will explore issues that can arise due to nerves, how to negotiate the recall and how to adapt in response to director's notes within an audition scenario. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? An insight into the strengths and weaknesses of your own process, techniques for navigating the unpredictability of the audition room, audition practice and individual feedback from the director. Price: £30.
