Our College Audition Prep Workshop  focuses on both  Stage Acting and Musical Theatre.


The workshop consists of two parts,

split into three sessions 

PART ONE: Assessments & Recommendations 

(2 hours) 

PART TWO: Coaching Sessions 1 & 2:  

(3 hrs each)

PART ONE:  Assessments  &  Recommendations 
The key to any audition is preparation. In the first segment of this two - part workshop we want to meet you, watch you perform your audition material, then make recommendations to prepare you for our work together in the two Coaching sessions.  You’ll meet us and your peers, we will assess where you are in your prep, what tools or materials you still might need and we’ll get familiar with your performance style to gauge how best to work with you.
PART TWO: Coaching Workshop (Sessions I & II) 
The best way to approach improving your audition performance is by focusing on your strengths while managing your weaknesses. During your 2 Coaching Sessions you will workshop your selected material with Mr. Harney in a small class setting. Each class is 3-hours and will hold a maximum of 8 students, to insure everyone gets substantial focus time on their material.
