PATA's Audition Prep 201 workshops provide expert audition coaching in a focused, small group setting.

This workshop will allow up to 8 participants to share contemporary (non-Shakespeare, non-classical) monologues. To get the most out of this workshop, we recommend participants plan to present your introductory slate and the audition piece or pieces (totaling 2 minutes) that you're preparing for PATA's 2021 Citywide General Auditions. Also, have a copy of your monologue text(s), .jpg headshot, and a .pdf one-page resume ready to drop into the Zoom chat if requested. 

Regardless of whether you're participating or auditing, please make sure your PATA account settings allow you to receive all emails. The Zoom link will be distributed to registrants shortly before the event via mass email.
