Audition Workshop with Olissa Rogers
Olissa will use her experience and expertise to help improve your audition technique. Actors will be sent a script prior to the workshop and asked to perform like you would for a real casting – Olissa will be giving live feedback and working with each actor throughout the workshop. Olissa will share advice on techniques you can take forward with you and answer any questions you might have. This workshop is a chance to also learn from your peers, so please be prepared to perform in front of all workshop participants.
