*MUSICAL THEATRE IN PERSON WORKSHOP*

Do nerves get the better of you in singing auditions?

Are you physically self-conscious when singing in front of a panel? Do you struggle to act through a song when not presented in full show context? What is the most appropriate 16-bar cut to sing?

In this specific singing workshop, Gordon will work through any of these worries, queries and personal obstacles by offering you tailored feedback to any two of your own contrasting song choices. Please select a 16-bar cut (or thereabouts) of both songs, clearly marked on printed, cellotaped sheet music for the pianist and bring a second printed copy for Gordon. It will be entirely your choice to flag your worries either before or after singing. Please come warmed up ready to sing. There will be a Q&A at the end of the session for Gordon to answer any questions, whether they be musical theatre or other industry questions.

Gordon has worked in casting for eleven years across the board in TV, film, theatre and musical theatre. Recent credits as Casting Director include My Fair Lady (London Coliseum); Disney’s Frozen (Theatre Royal, co-casting with James Orange CDG) and a confidential horror feature film in early development. Gordon spent five years as Casting Associate to Kate Rhodes James CDG CSA (TV included House of the Dragon, Dracula, Line of Duty, Bodyguard; film included House of Gucci, The Last Duel) and five years prior to that working alongside Jill Green CDG (Co-Casting Director on Jersey Boys and The Scottsboro Boys; Casting Associate on The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, War Horse, Kinky Boots and Beautiful).

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?
This course is aimed at professional actors who are looking to hone and perfect their audition skills. Everyone starts at Level 1, regardless of experience. This level 1 course is taught by Alastair, who has been teaching at Mixing Networks for 5 years. The course will go in depth about auditioning for drama, soaps and comedy with each script presenting a common pitfall so actors know how to avoid them going forward.

SELF TAPE COURSE
This is the self tape variation of the level 1 course. Once a week for 3 weeks, a small group of actors will be given a script to self tape and submit. The whole class will then review each tape and critique it. Everyone is given homework to do after each class. This particular course will cover the technical sides of self taping such as eye lines and lighting. Each class will last approx. 3 hours.

We are confident everyone will finish the level 1 course with a better understanding of what casting directors are looking for. You then have the option to put your new skills and knowledge into practice by joining the level 2 class upon completing level 1.

The course dates run as follows:
Monday 08/11/22 7pm - 10pm
Monday 15/11/22 7pm - 10pm
Monday 22/11/22 7pm - 10pm
