What to expect:
We will begin with warm up exercises and improv games. Cold readings will be assigned after warm ups so actors may review them during monologues if they choose. We will see readings at the end. The entire audition process will take about an hour, depending on the number of actors auditioning.
What to wear:
Avoid clothing that might distract us from focusing on your performance and you. You will be expected to move a bit, especially in the warm up and improv part of the audition so please wear something you will be comfortable enough to move in.
