Gallimaufry Performing Arts is hosting two “Biz of the Biz” workshops geared toward young adults 16 and up on April 23 at the Laguna Beach Boys and Girls Club.
The cost is $165 for each session, held at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Actors wishing to pursue a professional career will gain insight into Hollywood casting from an associate casting director Eric Souliere, who will lead this first workshop for Hollywood hopefuls.
The workshop will consist of auditioning, cold reading, industry tips and Q&A. The audition technique segment will focus on cold-readings. The participants will be paired up and given scenes to read. They will perform them for the casting director and receive valuable feedback on their work.
The industry tips segment will explain to the actors what is expected of them, what the casting directors are looking for, how to build a relationship with casting directors and how to avoid scams.
Participants are encouraged to bring their headshots and resumes for the industry tips segment to get feedback and suggestions. Participants are also asked to prepare questions for the Q&A.
