Industry Audition Workshop

Online via Zoom (see info below)

Want to learn the ins and out of auditioning for theater, film, and/or television? Then this free audition workshop is for you! Maranatha High School is hosting a complimentary online audition workshop, presented via Zoom, for current MHS students, prospective students, and alumni on August 1 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. (CLICK HERE to join as an audience member.) 
The workshop will offer participants a crash course in audition technique/etiquette, headshots, resumes, audition prep, finding material, and will provide professional feedback. Participants will also talk about music, finding the right keys, character types, and how to dress for auditions. As a bonus, the first five people to sign up will be able to participate firsthand. They will 'workshop' material and receive coaching from Mr. Taylor Wesselman, Maranatha's Theatre instructor, and two industry professionals, Shelley Carling and Dan Amerman. Both previously worked with our Drama 1 students this past semester. Mr. Amerman was present for the students' final scene performances, and Ms. Carling taught an Improv/Sketch Comedy intensive on Zoom alongside Mr. Wesselman. We are thrilled to welcome them back.  
The first 30 minutes of the workshop will provide 'core' information, include introductions of the guest speakers, and explain how auditions will be conducted at Maranatha beginning this year. Participants may then stay and observe the five "volunteers" as they are coached in a Master Class-style format. If you are interested in being one of the five who will participate and interact live with the coaches, please email Mr. Wesselman at to reserve a spot, offered on a first-come, first-served basis. All others are welcome to attend the webinar as an audience member.
