The StageSource GoAudition! Workshop
Saturday, February 16, 2019
Wheelock Family Theatre at Boston University
A DAY-LONG EVENT TO HELP YOU NAIL YOUR NEXT AUDITION!
Coaching will be provided by professional directors and acting coaches like Christopher Edwards (Artistic Director, Actors' Shakespeare Project) and Rebecca Bradshaw (Associate Producer, Huntington Theatre Company) Two more coaches will be announced soon!
9:30 am to 10:00 am: Check-in
10:00 am to 11:00 am: A panel discussion with two audition coaches about the ins and outs of a successful audition. Topics will include: choosing material, knowing your "type," how to slate, and more!
11:00 am to 1:00 pm: Actors will be divided into two groups, each focused on basic audition technique. Coaches will work with individual actors in front of the group to showcase key audition techniques. Actors should come prepared with a memorized contemporary monologue.
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm: LUNCH. You may go out for a quick bite or pack a lunch and bring it with you. We encourage you to use this time as a networking opportunity to get to know your fellow actors and StageSource staff.
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm: Actors will choose one of two groups - either Auditioning for Musical Theatre OR Auditioning for Classical/Shakespearean Theatre. You will choose your area of focus when registering and should come prepared with either a short musical audition piece, or a classical monologue.
**For this workshop, there are no specific time limits on material but we do ask that you keep your selection short (1-2 minutes) so that there is ample time for coaching.
4:00 pm to 5:00 pm: A panel discussion with our two afternoon coaches. You are invited to bring your headshot and resume for review and discussion.
