Long Wharf's Studio School offers classes for both youth and adult students at various times throughout the year. Classes are taught by Education Department staff or local guest artists. Past offerings have included Scene Study, Audition Technique, and Intro to Theater. 



Perfect the Part: Teen Audition Intensive

Taught by Madelyn Ardito

Ages 13 - 18 

Whether you're preparing for auditions with your school, a community theater, or a college program, having strong classical and contemporary monologues is a necessity for any actor. Actors in this class will be guided through the entire audition process. 

Learn how to:

1. Create a resume and select a headshot. Have these already? Bring them to class and get feedback to make them even better. Don't have them at all? Get your headshot taken by one of our professional staff photographers and use it at your next audition! (An additional fee applies.)

2. Select the monologues that are right for you.

3. Analyze the text of a play and develop a complex character.

4. Select the right audition outfit.

5. Present yourself and your monologues with full confidence.

6. Show an audition panel that you are their only choice!

The experience will culminate in a mock audition with Long Wharf staff members and specific feedback for each actor. 

Price: $250 per student 

Schedule: Mondays, January 23rd - March 13th, 4 - 6PM
