This is a one-day, fast-paced Acting Intensive and Professional Prep Workshop for beginning and intermediate actors ages 9-16.  (OK for advanced, too!  A great workout since we will videotape and analyze audition scenes and monologues.)  Focusing on developing and fine-tuning basic AUDITION/PERFORMANCE skills (emphasis on film and TV auditions and performance) - participants learn tips and techniques to help them DELIVER A GREAT PERFORMANCE UNDER PRESSURE.  We will also address the video audition process for casting directors and agents across the country.
