Auditioning is an art of it’s own.  It can be confusing, intimidating, and stressful.  Let’s get you excited and prepared for auditions!  We’ll create a judgement-free environment where all will be challenged and comforted as vulnerable performers.

This class is for teens pursuing TCHA auditions and beyond.  Students will learn and hone audition material suitable for college, community theatre, performing arts programs, etc.  All experience levels welcome!  Whether you are a seasoned “auditionee” or brand new to the challenge, this class will benefit you.  Students will finish the course with contrasting audition material and knowledge to prepare for future auditions.  Gain confidence in your audition abilities!

I am passionately in love with the art of theatre. I grew up in sunny South Florida where I pursued musical theatre training with youth performing arts studios. For some crazy reason I decided to go to college in FREEZING cold Minneapolis, MN. At North Central University I received a beautifully well-rounded education in theatre. Iwas able to experience multiple facets of the university’s main stage productions: performing principal and chorus roles, lighting design, costume design, stage management, and assistant directing. Through my theatre, voice, and dance classes I developed a deeper understanding of the art form as well as improved my abilities as a theatre artist. I love acting and directing equally. I live for the magical sensation of immersing myself into a character and portraying her to a captivated audience. I am filled with exhilaration when breathing life into a script by orchestrating the components needed to effectively portray a story. I LOVE teaching what I know to others. I want to spend my life invested in the art of theatre.I never want to stop learning and growing. I want to play a major role in keeping theatre alive and growing.
