Audition Preparation Classes

Alliance Audition Preparation - Kim Tobin

This class is offered once or twice a year as preparation for the annual Alliance Auditions held by the Houston Theatre Alliance in June. Students will be counseled on choice of material, and then guided to the point where they will be able to present the best audition that they possibly can.  They are also given the opportunity to perform a practice audition in a group environment prior to the actual auditions. The Alliance Auditions limit an actor’s time to 2 minutes; material should be picked accordingly.

Kim offers private lessons year round for audition coaching.

 

Classical Audition Preparation - Philip Lehl

This class is offered once or twice a year as preparation for the annual auditions held by several theatres in Houston that present primarily classic plays. Students will be counseled on choice of material, and then guided to the point where they will be able to present the best audition that they can. In general, students will emerge from the class with two pieces, one in verse (usually by Shakespeare,) and a contrasting monologue (from a play not less than 100 years old.)

Cold Reading Skills Class (2 or 3 times annually) - Kim Tobin

Students will learn a series of technical steps that will make them comfortable working with script-in-hand, and free them from being trapped in the script, thus helping them be ready for any problem that can come up, or trip them up in the audition environment.

This class focuses on applying good acting technique and choices in the compressed time frame and artificial environment that typically constitutes an audition.
