Come one, come all ! KCPT provides performance opportunities for all levels of experience. This new workshop is being offered to ease you into the auditioning process. If you are planning on attending General Auditions, if youíre new to the community or if you simply want to brush up on your auditioning skills, we recommend attending this workshop!
Auditioning can often prove the most challenging acting exercise, even for well seasoned actors. This workshop will provide techniques that you can use in your rehearsal process as well as the audition room that will unleash your confidence and creativity. In an audition, an actor needs to show that s/he is both, an artist and a showman, a creative spirit and a professional. The activities taught in this workshop will help you to give your best audition ever.
About the Workshop:
All actors attending should bring a two-minute monologue that they can use in the workshop. Perusal scripts of our 2013 season plays will be available -- beginning Tuesday October 2 -- at the KCPT uptown offices at 1128 Lawrence Street. Office hours are 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Following the workshop, actors may elect to sign up for additional fee-based monologue coaching.
To reserve your place at this FREE workshop, you can register here online. Information about the 2013 workshop will be posted here a few weeks before 2013 General Auditions.
