Drama Workshops
Wow!!  I had so much fun with you guys during the 3 day workshop!!!  It was wonderful to get to work with all of you on exploring emotions, being able to let go and be silly, and learn how to stay in character!  I am excited to work with all of you again in the near future!  

 

Audition Advice
*Be well rested the night before
*Eat a light breakfast 
*Drink water!  
*Prepare!  Be familiar with the play/characters ahead of time
*Dress the part (but not over the top)
*Be polite, confident, and smile!
*Remember…you are auditioning as soon as you enter the door!
*Be FLEXIBLE!  Be happy with ANY part you get!

*AND MOST IMPORTANT….It is NORMAL to have nerves on audition day, just don’t focus on them…focus on telling a story….on being a character!  (The nerves get better the more you rehearse)
