Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: choose appropriate material for auditioning; examine the concept of "type" in casting and how it applies personally to actors; calculate what casting personnel are looking for in a monologue audition; apply acting technique skills to an audition monologue; differentiate particular skills necessary for an effective monologue audition from technique used for partnered scene work; isolate the steps of breaking down and performing an audition monologue; utilize voice and speech skills in the monologue audition work; demonstrate audition skills; perform strengths through audition material; and present audition sides with strong and informed choices.  


This course helps actors refine their acting audition skills through working on a variety of materials commonly used at auditions. Lessons on these materials are designed to aid students when auditioning for plays, musicals, agency offices, theatre sessions, summer stock auditions, film, and television.
