Auditions can be a terrifying experience. You panic. You don't trust yourself. And worst of all, you don't get a chance to show people what you can do. Through the guidance of actor/director Matt Pfeiffer, "A Practical Approach to Auditions" helps you to gain confidence on how to attack an audition with guts and honesty. The class offers one on one coaching in both monologues and cold reads, as well as an evaluation from a panel of professional directors. It's time to stop letting auditions get the better of you. Take a strong and practical approach to the process.

Great chefs are ingredient-oriented.  They build dishes through experience and instinct: how much seasoning, how to incorporate ingredients, and arriving at cuisines that display their signature convictions.  In this three-hour workshop, Philadelphia-based actor Akeem Davis will take you through his method for using culinary technique to develop character, find truth in a monologue or scene, and to bring your own experience onto the stage.  Join him on a culinary journey into performance.
