Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center - Black Box Theatre
3181 Rainbow Dr., Decatur, GA 30034
5:00pm (Sign-in begins at 4:30?pm)

The workshop will begin at 5:00pm with a very brief overview of Career Materials (industry standard Headshots, Resumes, Reels); Online Presence (websites, talent sites and social media); Audition Materials; and stress free Audition Preparation Tips.

In the main part of the workshop, Audition / Performance Review, Workshop attendees may present a one to two minute audition or performance piece which T'Keyah will critique.**

The workshop will conclude with a 20-30 minute Q&A session, ending at 7:00pm.

Actors who wish to have their performance / audition work critiqued should: Prepare to present a strong, memorized, one to two-minute audition or performance piece for evaluation during the workshop. Choose a classical or contemporary monologue, or excerpts from two or more pieces, from an existing theatrical show (television show or film). No profanity.  Nothing sexually explicit. You may also include within your two minutes up to 16 bars of one or two songs. No musical accompaniment will be provided.  Pieces MUST be memorized. You must also bring a printed copy of your piece, typed, and double spaced for T'Keyah. Allotted time and number of performers selected will be restricted depending on class size.  

**There will only be time in the workshop for a limited number of attendees to present, so if you would like to present audition or performance material to be critiqued during the workshop: Email your name and the name and length (1-2 minutes) of your selection to as soon as possible. You will be notified if you are included on the list of those presenting, or if you have been added to the wait list.  

NOTE: Participants will not be allowed to record the workshops by any electronic means. Bring a notepad and pen to take notes and be prepared to listen and absorb.

Workshop size is limited. Register for your place now!

No refunds will be issued. We never know when we'll be booked though, so if your plans change and you cannot attend, you may transfer your registration to another person.  Just send an email to with your name and the name of the person taking your place. That person will have to present a copy of your registration information.
