Your agent calls. “You have an audition! Choose one of three scenes, and bring in three unique, original, and hysterical characters by 4pm tomorrow! Be prepared to sing and dance!” What do you do? Panic, of course. You get upset. Which makes mom even more upset. Soon, there’s screaming in the house. What do I do?!
The answer is, you get prepared before that call comes in.
Creating and bringing comedic characters to life takes time, so being successful in these auditions means being prepared. During this virtual three weekend workshop intensive, students will work with improv /sketch comedy teacher & actor JAPHETH GORDON assisted by improviser and actress Carmen Scott!
Creating own portfolio of original comedic sketch characters

How to turn the seed of an idea into a fully realized performance.

Drawing inspiration from your daily life
On the last day of the intensive, students will perform in a variety show for casting directors, agents & managers, professional improvisors and receive feedback & development notes live over zoom!
