Co-Star Audition
Workshop

Thursdays

$200

(Payment Plans Available)

Online via Zoom 

All Levels Welcome

Registration Closed

 

TV Co-Star auditions can be challenging for actors at any level in their craft and career. The self-tape deadlines are often tight and the information they receive can be limited. It can leave actors struggling to figure out how to prepare, make choices, and keep their performance grounded.

 

And these challenges are exactly what we will tackle together in this 2-Week Workshop! In addition to the live class with me, you will also practice 2 Co-Star self-tapes outside of class and receive personalized feedback. Actors of any level are invited to take this workshop.

What I cover in this workshop:

  • Practice Co-Star auditions and receive personalized feedback

  • Working with limited information

  • The importance of YOU 

  • Preparation & practicing your craft

  • Doing 2 different takes of the same scene

  • Being vs. showing: Keeping your performance grounded

  • Scripted Actions and Using Props

  • Creative problem-solving and critical thinking
