Being audition ready is imperative in order to do our best work when the opportunities happen. The Audition Drop In creates the high-stakes conditions encountered in a typical audition. This class ensures that at least once a week, you’ll go through the full audition process with a casting director. In this session, you will arrive, audition, and then have a chance to get feedback and do it a few more times with the adjjustments. Edward Rea has cast over 100 projects and we are extremely lucky to have this opportunity to work and learn from him.
