WAYTCo’s Act-Belong-Commit Performance Training Program, presents a dynamic auditions class in Term Four. This series of eight workshops will provide students with the tools to audition for theatre and film through the exploration of monologue and scene work.

This class will not only look at the performance elements for auditioning but will also examine strategies for approaching the audition, how to prepare prior and how to present during, things to consider, and how to manage nerves.

Led by theatre maker/performer/director Mark Storen and award-winning film and TV commercial director Stevie Cruz Martin this is an excellent opportunity for young performers to collect and develop working audition pieces they can use for future auditions as they begin their artistic journey.
