About this Event

The Audition

Think of this session as Game Day.

This workshop will expand on the work from the “batting cage”. Students will work on scenes from different genres, giving each actor the opportunity to adjust and play with the specific demands of the material. This workshop will conclude with mock auditions where students will use the skills they’ve honed. With this combination of specific tools and feedback tailored to each student,  Mulvey and Engelhardt will help you knock it out of the park every time.
