Virus update June 2021: I am vaccinated. So I am available for in-person coaching. However, I will also continue video conferencing as it has proven to be an effective means of coaching. Click to see the VIDEO CONFERENCING page.
Do you have a big audition coming up? Auditioning is a skill unto itself. There are hundreds of books devoted to the subject. Professional and university acting programs have semester-long classes devoted entirely to “how to get the acting job.”
I have taught special audition classes at the University of Oregon and Gonzaga University. I have incorporated audition skills into all of my acting classes everywhere I have taught acting. I have served as evaluator of Irene Ryan auditions at the Northwest College Drama Festival and coached many students on University/Resident Theatre Association (URTA) auditions, and auditions for particular universities or colleges that require the same type of audition (two-contrasting monologues within a precise time limit, one of which is usually classical).
Audition coaching can be done in-person, or via VIDEO CONFERENCING (see note above regarding Coronavirus). Rate: $130/hr
