The Secret Theatre's Academy is expanding this winter to include a 4-week intensive on auditions! As spring is just around the corner, so is audition season - warm up with us this winter in our personalized, inclusive and fun class designed with you in mind. Our instructor takes a holistic approach to audition coaching, and walks participants through each step, from the moment an actor submits online to the moment they are in a callback cold-reading a scene.
This course will cover different audition topics each week:
Behind the Table: Casting Basics for Actors
The first week, we will walk the class through Backstage, Actors Access, and the audition room - letting participants see from a Casting Director's perspective.
Musical Theatre: 16-32 Bars to Success
An accompanist is provided! Bring your best cut, practice 16-32 bars, and get individualized, timely feedback on your musical theatre audition choices.
Cold Reads: How to Do Meaty Scenework on Your Feet
Our instructor will walk the class through tips and tricks to mastering the dreaded cold read. Each participant will have the chance to do quick scenework with others and receive timely feedback.
Monologue Monday: Conquering the First 20 Seconds
The final week will focus in on monologues - each participant will be asked to prepare a 2-3 minute monologue and will receive individualized coaching and feedback on their piece from our instructor.
Taught by professional and experienced teacher/ performers.
