Gesa Power House Theatre will host “Auditioning (from A to Z)” a workshop by Tyson Kaup and ReNae Davis on Saturday, February 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
This workshop is intended to demystify the audition process and will cover the basics of auditioning for traditional and musical theater – everything from how to format a headshot and resume; to the business of acting and agents; to managing nerves and what to expect if you are called back. Participants (ages 8 and up) are asked to bring one prepared audition piece – a song or monologue that is less than one minute in length.
This workshop will be great preparation for any actors planning to audition on March 9 for the upcoming Walla Walla Summer Stage productions (Annie and 9 to 5).
Tickets ($25) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Questions? Email email@example.com.
Participating actors will also have the opportunity to sign up for headshots taken by a professional photographer during the lunch break for an additional fee of $25 (cash only).
