Whether it’s upcoming auditions, meeting agents or trying to break into the business through open castings, we want to help you personalise your work and let your unique personality shine through. Join us to learn audition techniques and how to best prepare. We’ll focus on identifying the important given circumstances of your scene, what does your character want to achieve, and who are you speaking to. Come prepared with a monologue, or work from a cold read if you’d like to be coached.
