Audition Workshop with Samantha Hill December 20, 12-4 pm
The goal of this workshop is to help students improve their confidence and awareness from the moment they walk into an audition room to the moment they exit. We will mimic an actual audition setting and go step by step through the process as well as work on acting moments in the student’s songs in order to support stronger future audition experiences. Please prepare a musical theatre song approx. 2 minutes in length

Most recently, she finished her run in the original Broadway revival cast of Les Miserables starring as Cosette.
