Class Description

Let's face it. Auditions can be scary. But when you're prepared, auditioning can be fun! Each week students will spend an hour with Mr. Johnson and an hour with Mrs. Toussaint.  Mr. Johnson’s weekly workshops will cover topics like audition etiquette, knowing your type, monologue selection and preparation, head shots, resumes, call backs, cold reads and more!  Next spend an hour with Mrs. Toussaint to focus on your vocal audition.  Get personal advice on “building your book” by adding appropriate audition songs to your repertoire, as well as practical techniques to highlight your vocal strengths, deliver a song with passion and create a memorable performance. Get ready to knock ‘em dead with the Complete Audition Package: You!
