COLLEGE AUDITION WORKSHOP with Mimi Harlow (AGES 14 to 18)

In the College Audition Workshop, students will learn about the complexities of applying to and auditioning for collegiate performing arts programs, and how to make the process more exciting than overwhelming. With so many different types of degrees, programs, requirements, and deadlines, it can be challenging for any student to know what is right for them, and how to keep everything organized. During this workshop, students will gain in depth knowledge about specific colleges/universities, how to create a targeted, “smart” list of schools, how to approach prescreen submissions, and how to select and prepare material that will showcase them in the best light. Students who come prepared with a monologue will also have the chance to participate in a mock college audition, where Mimi will provide audition technique guidance and tips she’s gathered from faculty at some of the top programs in the country. Due to time constraints, we may not get to every student’s individual monologue work, but we will do our best to get to as many as possible! Parents welcome!
