Our last session ended splendidly with an audition in front of theatrical agents Mark Measures, Steven Dry and legendary casting director Michael Donovan, accompanied by the fabulous Jeff Rizzo. It was a great opportunity to perform in front of these experienced industry professionals, and receive instant and candid feedback.
The Autumn session will begin Sept. 24, 2019. This is a good time to enlarge your repertoire, check out your performance skills, and get up in front of your peers. All work is on camera so you can measure your own progress.
Fee for the 9 sessions remains a reasonable $450.
