Starshine Theater to Hold Audition Workshop

— Starshine Theater!TM of Great Falls presents: "How to Audition for a Stage Show," for ages 6 through 18. Instructor: Pat Green Budwig, M.A., creative director, Starshine Theater,

Thursday, June 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. at The Great Falls Library, Meeting Room, 9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, Tel: 703-790-9050 or email: StarshineTheater@aol.com.

This event will give young performers of all levels a "behind-the-scenes" look at the elements required in a variety of audition formats, whether they're performing in Starshine's next play, would like to try out for a road show at the Kennedy Center, are auditioning for a commercial or film, or hope to travel to Broadway some day.

Sample audition sequences will be given (students can try them, or just watch); then, students who wish to present a short sample audition may do so; the presentation should be less than three minutes long.

  • Dramatists can present a monologue from a play, read a poem, tell a story, etc.
  • Singers can present a song a-capella, or should bring a CD or i-pod to sing to.
  • Dancers, martial artists, etc. should bring their own musical accompaniment.
  • Or, you can present any combination of drama, song, dance and/or action if you wish.

All presentations will be critiqued in a useful and stress-less fun manner. Advance reservations are required for this free event. Contact: Pat Green Budwig, 703-790-9050, StarshineTheater@aol.com.
