This fall, Actionplay is offering the Audition Workshop Series for adults with autism and other disabilities interested in pursuing the goal of becoming professional screen/stage actors. Open to the general public
The 7-session workshop series will be led by Broadway and TV actors/industry professionals Amanda Gardner and Stephen Anthony, featuring guest artists with disabilities.
The facilitators will support the actors in developing audition skills including choosing material, on-camera technique, character development, and responding to audition feedback. By the end of the workshop series, each actor will receive a personal headshot and a video of their prepared scenes and monologue. The culminating event of the class will be a showcase where the actors will present scenes and monologues in front of a panel of New York agents and casting directors for the purposes of exposure to industry professionals. (Please note that there is no guarantee of roles in any theater, TV, or film productions as a result of this showcase.) Class only available for ages 16 and up.
