Get ready to book your next show by taking a deep dive into 2 parts of the audition process: Choosing material for your audition and working well with your accompanist! Work together to help choose one song and monologue that fits you best during the first hour and then the class will culminate in a mock audition process where you get to perform your 32 bar cut and monologue for the class.
What to bring: At least 2 songs to choose your final 32 bar cut and at least one monologue. There will be some options for monologues at the class if needed.
