Musical Theatre Audition Workshop

Carol Weiss
Musical Theatre Workshop

Now in our 28th year!



Our Next Session Begins:

April 1, 2024


Call for an audition appointment: (323) 871-1249


There will be 8 Monday evening classes - ending with an audition in front of agents, directors and casting directors.  

Topics include:

  • How to make a successful self-tape
  • Talking to a pianist
  • The song as a monologue
  • Creating a subtext
  • Entering and leaving the room
  • Singing to a partner
  • Preparing your music
  • The audition wardrobe
  • What songs do I need?
  • Intros and endings
  • What roles can I play?
  • Formatting a resume
  • Taking risks!


Class size is small. Everyone works every week.  All work is on camera. This is a good time to enlarge your repertoire, check out your performance skills, and get up in front of your peers.   Fee for the 8 sessions remains a reasonable $400.

The workshop is held on Monday evenings. Classes start at 7 PM and usually end by 10 PM.

The class is at my studio – located in the middle of Hollywood, CA (near Sunset and Vine)

There is plenty of free parking available.

The eighth class is a REAL audition. Usually held at Screenland Studios or Madelyn Clarke

The guests include: a working casting director, stage director, and an agent.

Our final class is always held at one of the well-known audition venues.  In attendance are a casting director, a theatrical agent, and a director. You will “audition” for them, and they will give you live feedback.

All your work and critiques are videotaped.  After each class you will receive a link where you can view or download the videos.

Videos of all your work and Carol’s opening remarks are posted online and available to you after each class.


After working as a musical director and audition pianist at thousands of auditions, I discovered that many people sabotage themselves because they don't have an accurate picture of the Los Angeles audition "scene." I created the Musical Theatre Workshop to prepare performers for the reality of today's musical theatre.
