PATA's Audition Prep 201 workshops provide expert audition coaching in a focused, small group setting.
This workshop will allow up to 6 participants to share contemporary (non-Shakespeare, non-classical) monologues. To get the most out of this workshop, we recommend you plan to present your introductory slate and the audition piece or pieces (totaling 2 minutes) that you're preparing for PATA's 2020 Citywide General Auditions. Also, please bring two copies of your monologue text to the workshop..
