Associate Artistic Director Rose Riordan has seen it all in years of auditions. In this one day workshop, she'll share the do's and don'ts and help you present your best self in auditions.

On-your-feet, practical coaching of your current audition pieces will breathe new life into your favorite audition pieces and give perspective on what a casting director really sees when you perform and what she really hopes to see. Come prepared with four short monologues (one minute in length max for each). Space is limited.

Please note: To make sure all participants get the most out of the workshop, we require a quick review of your headshot/resume. Please email us your preferred workshop date your headshot and a resume at and someone will be in touch shortly to sign you up and take payment.
