Learn from Instructor Tom Thon to be consistently prepared for your auditions by mastering the basics. This course will introduce you to the joys of acting from a practical point of view. It will define for you the basics of the actor’s job and how anyone with the desire, focus, and commitment to succeed can master a personal technique to draw on for any acting situation.

Meet With instructor Tom Thon on Monday mornings from 11:00AM to 2:00PM

Min 4 and max 10 students per class

Apply your Practical Audition Preparation skills each week with a different on camera audition. You will be recorded at least twice each session with feedback and coaching from the instructor for each playback. Open Q&A is invited and encouraged during class.

 

This ongoing class will give you the insights you can’t get in live auditions. Rarely will your agent or CD review your audition with you and point out how to improve your submission. By reviewing your auditions each week you will begin to eliminate unconscious behavior from your auditions and replace it with more positive traits that will improve your call back rate!
