Turning the Tables: Audition Workshop with Lookingglass Theatre

Price — $80.00

Find out more about who you really are by engaging with the Lookingglass in a series of courses designed for adults, and led by some of the most accomplished, inspiring artists our city has to offer.

“Can I use this chair?” Has the answer ever been “no?” Skip the ask and seize the room! According to longtime actor, savvy producer, and Lookingglass Casting Director (for 20+ years), Ensemble Member Philip R. Smith, “Auditions are for actors; not acting.” Circle up, then, and let’s examine that and how it applies to each part of your audition experience. Every session will start with PSmith’s perspective, proceed to monologue/scene coaching, and wind up with team conversations. This “Zroom” promises to be inspired, engaged, useful, and supportive, and by the time we wrap and tie off the bow, you’ll have a sure sense of how to leave any audition room happy. So use the chair, or let it sit. The choice (and the power) is yours!  

Please note: Classes will be held online through zoom.
