The Actors Centre

Auditions: How to Make Maximum Impact

WHAT IS IT? A thorough exploration of the whole audition process - making a good impression, bold choices, listening carefully to notes and guidance and facilitating the most fruitful possible chat about the play. HOW WILL IT WORK? You will read and prepare to audition for a part in either Richard III, The Crucible or The Beauty Queen of Leenane. We will talk through all aspects of the audition process and then each participant will have a practice audition. We will also do some work on being in the moment and on trusting your instincts. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? Audition practice and thorough feedback. An invaluable and practical set of tools and guidelines that you can implement immediately and a new perspective on the whole process of auditioning. PRICE: £18.
