The Audition Room with Gabriel Stelian-Shanks
A first-of-its-kind workshop for directors (and actors are welcome too!), Maximizing The Audition is for everyone who wants to improve their audition experience.  In this two-part master class, Executive Artistic Director Gabriel Stelian-Shanks will break down the audition from both sides of the table, sharing techniques and revealing techniques directors can use to creative a productive audition room, improve selection processes, refine callback experiences, and more. In part two, directors and actors chosen from the class will experience mock auditions guided by Mr. Stelian-Shanks, experiencing in real-time the techniques discussed.  It's a must for anyone who wants to go beyond the monologue and find their own self inside the process!
