Be prepared with upcoming audition workshops

Do you get nervous at the very thought of an audition?

Take the fear out of the auditioning process with our upcoming workshop series.

The Patel Conservatory in Tampa is hosting a series of audition workshops for grades 5 to 8, and grade 9 through adult, designed to help actors develop the skills to present a successful and professional audition.

We got feedback from artistic directors in the Tampa Bay area and around Florida, and they said that three things are consistently lacking in auditions.

“We have devoted our workshops to those three points,” said Ami Sallee, theater department chair. “Actors need to be prepared before they walk into an audition, they must know their monologue backwards and forwards and they should know the basics of passing a music and dance audition.”

The audition series features three different workshops covering different topics. Take one, or take all three! The choice is yours.

This workshop series is perfect for students who are interested in auditioning for one of our Patel Conservatory Youth Theater spring musicals.
