Fall 2013 Storefront Audition Workshops
• Tune up your audition and callback skills!
• Get Multiple perspectives and feedback on your work!
• See what directors see by sitting in on the process!
• Learn about the "Chicago storefront" audition style!
Stage Left Theatre and Theatre Pros invite you to take part in our 2013 Storefront Audition Workshops. This comprehensive 3 day workshop will give you the full storefront audition experience without the pressure of a real make it or break it audition. Learn what things you can do inside and outside the audition room that can get you cast. SLT’s ensemble of artists, along with freelance guest directors/casting directors will advise you how to get in the door, sharpen your general audition monologues, and help you make strong choices in your cold reading callbacks. Choose which day is most appealing to you, or enroll in all three!
To register, email headshot, resume, cover letter, and which days you plan on attending by September13th to email@example.com If you have time restrictions for the Saturday monologue clinic please note them in your email.
Audit prices are for non- participants who would like to watch and learn. Audit prices cannot be bundled for discounts.
