Audition Like a Pro!

May 24, 2019

Time: Friday, 6:00-9:00 pm
Instructor: Erik Stein
Cost: Participant: $35 / Observer: $20
Class Details


This workshop will give actors the techniques to create and execute auditions like a seasoned professional. Erik has created an easy, five point check list that will help actors prepare audition material and give them practical steps to follow on the day of the audition. We will discuss material, connection, focus, the “moment before”, discovery, wardrobe, and much more. Those that are only interested in observing will learn the check list and find inspiration in an over-all approach and philosophy as to how to prepare and execute an audition. (Plus, actors learn a lot from watching others audition!)

We will turn your auditions into one person shows that people should pay to see.

Workshop Costs:

Participant: $35.00
Get up on your feet and work on your audition piece with Erik!
Observer: $20.00
Learn Erik’s specific audition techniques and see those techniques in action!

Those wishing to work with Erik on their feet should reserve a spot soon. Erik will only be able to work with 10 actors on their feet during the 3-hour session. Those working on their feet will need to have a memorized contemporary monologue that is no longer than 90 seconds and wear the outfit and shoes that they would wear to an audition.

Erik is happy to have as many observers as possible. Please reserve early. Space is limited.
