Create Your Own Story

 

 

Step right into an adventure as the main protagonists! The whole class will work together to decide where the story will go and what will happen to the characters. Do you go into the abandoned house? Or sit down for some ice cream instead? This class asks students to think on their feet and work as an ensemble to determine how a story will develop as it happens. It’s up to you to create this story!

Audition Lab

Audition Lab is a great way to prepare for upcoming auditions! With the help of a professional teaching artist, students will choose audition monologues that match their age, personality, and individual audition needs. Students will prepare a monologue, develop successful strategies for cold readings, and learn how to create a professional resume. The final class includes a special audition with Jeff Church, Coterie Producing Artistic Director, or a member of The Coterie staff, for youth roles in the upcoming Coterie season. 

This class offers an opportunity for consideration in The Coterie’s Acting Master class.
