I enjoyed presenting workshops today at DRAMAFEST! My topic: Auditioning for a Musical. After watching theatre students from every high school in the Carroll County Public Schools system perform excerpts from their spring musicals on the stage at Carroll Community College, it was a pleasure to share with them my top tips for preparing and delivering a great audition.

Topics of other workshops at DramaFest included expressive stage movement, audio mixing, scenic design, technical directing, dramaturgy, monologue prep, playwrighting, stage management, and more.
It was wonderful spending time with so many young people who are passionate about the performing arts!
