Auditioning for Commercials, w/ Dave Manganelli

A brand-new workshop for 2020!  By popular request!

In last year’s group discussions for Dave’s “Acting for Commercials and Corporate Projects” workshops, we found that many actors and actresses:

-Expressed frustration with auditions in which they never got any useful feedback or direction
-Or with auditions in which they never really got much of a chance to perform

Many asked for a new workshop where they could:

-Work with actual scripts and get feedback on their auditions
-Others wanted practice auditions for real speaking parts
-And many wanted both!

Others of you haven’t auditioned all that much recently and would simply like a chance to practice some quality auditions in a supportive environment in front of an experienced professional who’s used to auditioning and hiring actors.

To that end, Dave will direct you thru auditions with 4 completely different types of :30 commercial scripts. You’ll do auditions with the other actors, as well doing at least one solo audition.

This workshop will start with a quick overview talk by Dave, then we’ll move right into the audition sessions, keeping the pace brisk.

At the end, Dave will debrief the entire class with his comments and also be available for any individual follow-up questions.

So come and get back in gear for 2020!
