One of the main sources of stress for the actor has to do with preparation.  You feel compelled to do the same amount of prep as you would if you had a week’s notice, in the span of just 24 hours.

 This class is designed to help you develop the emergency kit necessary to be more efficient in your preparation and reduce audition stress. It is taught by Lewis Baumander.
Class is capped at 8 actors total. It will deal with how social media can be your friend and your enemy. You will learn how to eliminate the encumbrance of context, backstory, figuring out relationships and other archaic 19th century forms of breaking down a text. Actors will receive their sides at 5pm 2 nights before class. They will arrive as best prepared as they can be and audition in front of the class. We will measure your preparation against your result. We will look for efficiencies in your work to produce a stronger, less stressed audition.
Each of the 4 weeks you will receive a fresh set of sides and by the end of the 4 week session you will be ready for the 48 hour turn around.
You will be provided with sides 48 hours before class to be prepped as an audition.

Studio Make Up Date = is a date reserved in the event that the  STUDIO needs to reschedule a class within the session. Actors are expected to hold this date for possible make-up sessions.
