Participants in this two hour class will perform prepared material for an experienced casting professional. Prepared read instructions to be sent to confirmed participants closer to the event date.
This is an opportunity for actors to perform for Matthew 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.
Note: Only members on the RSVP list will be given the opporunity to perform, however if you are on the Waitlist and not put on the RSVP list, you are still welcome to attend to audit the class.
