A 4-Week Workshop Series on Auditioning

Instructor: Jodie Cain Smith

You have dreams of stardom. You crave the spotlight. You have perfected five different accents, but the notion of the audition leaves you cowering in the fetal position drowning in a puddle of nerves and self-loathing.

Learn how to audition like a pro and score the role in this interactive audition class series. The Developing Your Bag of Tricks series will teach the audition process from selecting, analyzing, rehearsing, and performing an audition monologue to conquering the dreaded cold reading.

Jodie Cain Smith, acting instructor and published writer, will teach you how to make any casting director take notice of you. Learn how to take risks, audition with confidence, set yourself apart from the pack & maximize your auditioning potential.

No experience is necessary.
