BPBCo. Audition Monologue Workshop
The Brown Paper Box Co. and executive director M. William Panek are hosting an audition monologue workshop!
Saturday, October 18, 12:00p-2:00p
Theatre Momentum, Studio C (1800 W Cornelia Ave.)
From the second you walk into an audition room to the company's final, "Thanks for coming!," you have ample opportunities to make a positive lasting impression with casting directors and production staff. For 2 hours, we'll create a supportive and informative atmosphere working through monologues and audition techniques for up to 10 actors. We'll also have space in the room for those wishing to audit the workshop.
$15 to perform and work your monologue (10 slots available).
$5 to audit and not perform (up to 8 slots available).
Please prepare one 90-second contemporary monologue and dress as if you were attending a real audition. Come prepared to take some notes (recording devices are ok!), gain some advice, and have a fun afternoon.
Space is limited so book while you can!
