The workshop will cover the basics, fundamentals and protocols. These are the standard rules and expectations of what-to-do and what-not-do in any audition. These “Do’s and Don’ts” are indeed the rock solid basic and have been taught the same way for decades. But in subsequent class sessions you will move on to advanced techniques (and rule breaking) that will help develop all actors, of all skill levels find a more clear, more “cast-able” unique performance that will make everyone stand up and take notice! They’ll know You’re-The-One! Or, The-One-To-Remember!
