The open casting workshop will include group improvisation, and experimentation with rhythmic movement and vocal delivery.
We might ask you to recite a short song or poem you know by heart (a lullaby, or a song you learned at school, or your soccer team’s anthem, for instance). We might also ask you to sing a short song. You’re welcome to prepare a song in advance, but you don’t have to: singing “Happy Birthday” will be just fine, too.

Finally, make sure you wear clothes and shoes you can easily move in.

For any questions or additional information, please write to the director, Abigail Akavia

We look forward to seeing you there!
