ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

CHOOSE: How to stand out with specific choices of material by taking several important factors into account

DIRECT: How to devise fun, specific staging that tells the story and helps the actor know what to do physically at every moment—helps greatly with nerves and gives the monologue variety and suspense

ACT: How to act with connection and truth “off the wall”—solves actors’ most common question/complaint: “how can I act without a partner?”

AUDITION: How to make smooth, professional entrances, introductions and exits.

FEARLESS COLD READING

You will learn to turn cold reading auditions into creative adventures instead of nerve-wracking ordeals!

FEARLESS COLD READING is a powerful 10-point system that works for cold AND prepared readings. The points get you out of your head, connected to your partner/reader, and telling the story of the scene with focused, bold, adventurous choices. You’ll learn what to immediately look for and notice in a script, including actions, stakes, structure, changes, genre and style. We also address how to take direction fully and quickly, working with good, average, and bad readers; troubleshooting difficult/unexpected direction & partner choices, and most importantly, how have FUN at your auditions, regardless of the amount of prep time.
