Audition workshops feature guest artists

Actor Billy Tighe of the Broadway tour of Wicked visited the cast of
Music Man Jr. last month. Guest instructors will join us for our upcoming
audition workshop series.

Join us for the Patel Conservatory audition workshop series, starting tomorrow night, Feb. 8!

Being prepared for an audition helps alleviate much of the pressure. Knowing what to expect and having a professional attitude will go a long way in helping you feel confident and ready to perform.

Tomorrow’s workshop focuses on Professionalism and Confidence. Theater instructor Eugenie Bondurant will guide you through the process of the audition and what you need to succeed.

Bondurant is an actress and certified Meisner instructor who brought her on-camera acting program from Los Angeles to the Patel Conservatory in 2004.

She’ll review what to expect at theater, film, television and commercial auditions.
You’ll learn what to put on your resume, headshot guidelines, how-to slate, proper audition attire, audition etiquette and where to seek out auditions.

Our upcoming workshops on Feb. 15 and 22 will feature guest instructors that will help you handle Monologues and Cold Readings and Audition Songs and Dance Combinations.

Being part of the Straz Center has its perks. Our students often have the opportunity to learn from guest artists from touring productions.

The cast of Music Man Jr. recently had a visit with Billy Tighe who played Fiyero in the Broadway tour of Wicked, which came to the Straz last month.

The Feb. 15 workshop, Monologues and Cold Readings, will be taught by Andrea Caban, touring with her one-woman show Questions My Mother Can't Answer.

The guest instructor for the Feb. 22 workshop will soon be announced!

Don't miss your chance to study with the pros at these audition workshops!
