Let’s face it, auditioning is a skill that you never get to practice.  In this intensive, that is exactly what we’ll do - Practice!! Mock dance call + Cold reads for roles + help with song selections + what to wear + how to walk into the room + structuring your resume + how to mentally prepare + all the questions answered! These workshops are for the newbies and the seasoned actors.   There are so many exciting shows coming up on the very active ILM scene for all ages and experience levels.  Get a Leg-Up on those nervous jitters and don’t let unpreparedness get in the way!  Private audition coaching slots available at a later date.


Taught by Carson Hobbs with guest teacher, Abbie Brady Dalton, casting agent for 15 years with Telsey + Co in NYC   (they cast the biggest Broadway shows and movie musicals in the biz)
