Amazing Auditions Workshop with New York Professionals

Audition Master Class with New York Casting Director Justin Huff, of Telsey + Company

Here’s your opportunity to get audition coaching from someone who casts Broadway musicals.  If you are going to be ready for season auditions in Seattle, or are moving to NYC or any other theatre city, the time to prepare is now.  Work on two contrasting audition cuts from your book with Justin Huff. There will be time to ask any and all questions you have had about the business in New York and about the audition process.

Bring: A 16 bar cut and a 32 bars cut, as well as your book.

 

Pop Songs for Musical Theatre Auditions with Mo Brady

Argh! Here comes that audition that requires a pop song!  Don’t know where to look or what will work without all the back up vocals and rhythm section? Pop songs in your rep are no long optional, they are essential in your book, and pop musicals have become a staple on Broadway, so be prepared!  Mo will listen to your voice and persona, directing you to pop artists and songs that will work for you. There will be discussion of the different eras of popular music actors should be familiar with, and the sensibility that each requires. During the master class you will learn how to capture the essence of a time period through song choice and performance.

Bring: 32 bars of your most contemporary sounding show tune, and whatever pop you have in your book now.
