This year we'll start with a panel including producers in Boston who will answer your questions like:

  • What does a producer want to see at an audition?
  • What are you looking for this year in the perfect actor?
  • How can I make sure my time (and your time as the producer) isn't wasted during my audition?



Following the panel, we'll hold a Movement Warm-Up group class with everyone - You'll move, you'll shake, and you'll prepare your body and mind for the upcoming day!

While most classes will be lead as seminars we encourage all participants to prepare a short monologue (2 minutes) and if interested 10-12 lines of your favorite Shakespeare verse (not prose). Time permitting we may be able to have some participants work on material in class.

Between 12:20PM and 1:40 PM we will hold The Audition Prep Seminar - actors, directors, and artistic directors will participate in a moderated discussion on how to prepare for an audition. What directors and artistic directors are looking for, how an actor might go about preparing, mistakes to avoid, and good ideas and practices to incorporate into one's auditioning tool belt for example, how to dress/present yourself, how to walk into an audition room with confidence, the benefits of changing up your monologue.

Do you offer services that are valuable to actors? Are you an acting coaches, instructors, accompanists, photographers, or make-up artists? If you're looking for a way to introduce yourself to the Boston Theater Community we encourage you to participate in the Go Audition! Vendor Fair, click here for details.
