Participants in this two hour class will perform a commercial cold reading for an experienced casting professional.
This is an opportunity for actors to perform for Michael in a safe and intimate environment and receive specific feedback and/or re-direction. This sort of learning experience does not exist in the real world. You either book the audition or you don’t. You rarely have the benefit of any substantial feedback on your performance.
