PRESENTER: DramaFest 2023

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.

Auditioning for a Musical

The Audition

+ behaviors / personal traits to display

+ how to work with an accompanist

+ successful delivery

Audition Preparation

+ day of the audition

+ preparing for a specific audition

+ practices to improve audition skills between auditions

Resume and Headshot

+ resume contents

+ headshot expectations

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!
