Self Test Audition Workshop with Lou Mitchell

Audition Skills for Professional Actors

Online Sessions from your place ...
Over 10 people have attended this class


This is an Audition Workshop with a difference.

Your first step will be to submit a self test from a scene supplied by Lou Mitchell (Moira Fay Casting)

On Saturday 8 August at  your allotted time you can view that self test with Lou and get her feedback on your audition and on your self test set up.

Lou will then direct you to a different performance outcome and you run the scene again for her, live in the online session and perhaps once more after that depending on the time.

When you sign up you can choose a specific time that suits you to review your scenes with Richard Sarell - so, you get two for the price of one.  That session with Richard will be on either the afternoon of Saturday 8 or the morning of Sunday 9 August.

The Rehearsal Room

Vendor since 2017

The Rehearsal Room is run by TV Director Richard Sarell who directed television drama for more than 25 years. During that time, he evolved an approach to acting that trains actors in techniques that enable them to compete and survive in the modern world of screen performance.

The techniques are based on simple principles that quickly produce professional results.  They enable the actor to create complex real characters that are perfect for the screen but are also relevant for the stage.  These classes enable actors to make choices that drive the character's interactions in a way that generates a compelling dramatic performance.  The actors skill is to engage an audience because they feel they are watching a real life interaction.  These classes provide the tools to deliver those outcomes.

Richard has been conducting workshops for professional actors in Australia and New Zealand for two decades, working with institutions such as the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS), Australian Screen Directors Association (ASDA), National Theatre Drama School, Federation University and the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).

09 August 2020Self Test Audition Workshop with Lou Mitchell
The experience was quite new for me but Richard, Lou and everyone else in the group made me feel so welcome and comfortable. The one on one time with Lou Mitchell was invaluable. I picked up so many tips and approaches to scenes by watching the others in the group. All in all a well organised, smooth running workshop that left me buzzing and inspired. Will definitely be back!

Enjoyed the workshop with Lou and Richard as host. It was useful observing everyone's work and listening to input and re direction from Lou. Took a few useful things away to apply.
