Auditions & Workshops

Workshop Information

The Arts & Learning Conservatory workshops empower participants to audition for any musical theatre opportunity with confidence by strengthening techniques in acting, scene study, character breakdown and cold reads.  Participants will learn performance readiness skills, by practicing the process and understanding the vocabulary of a theatre audition.  Our theater professionals help aspiring performers gain self-confidence by giving participants the tools they need for success, including what to expect in an audition, how to connect with material, and how to understand and take direction.

Please note: this is NOT an audition, but is a workshop to give tips for the musical and how to audition.
