"Gary Austin will forever be considered one of the greats, always interested in producing work that is funny and moving, because it's true and utterly unique. His work is always a treat to watch." - HELEN HUNT

Gary returns to work his magic. It challenges, brings uncomfortable to comfortable, heightens risk, and is all about truth. Experience how you can bring your work to a new place.

A time to play, work, make new discoveries …


Experience joy instead of dread at your next auditions by discovering how YOU are truly enough.

Every second of your audition counts. This workshop takes you through exercises on the interview and the cold reading. Learn how improvisation comes into play in the interaction between you and those holding the audition.

Do you wish you could maximize those first few seconds of an interview that make all the difference in the world, or do a brilliant cold reading? This is the workshop that will get you there.

Thursday, February 26th

Come audit the 48th Street Exercise.
Amy Sedgwick, Mike Fuller, Jerry Jaz, Kay LaVergne Jaz, Craig Nelson will perform the 48th St. Exercise in this solo workshop. Tom Voytko will perform a selection of his work in progress

The solo show has become a staple of American Theatre. This workshop has helped actors create solo shows that have gone on to staged performance, and it is also a great way to stretch your character-building and acting skills.
In this workshop, actors will perform the "48th Street Exercise." We'll explore extreme physical and vocal changes, creative freedom, emotional depth, sub-text and character to create compelling solo performances.

Even the finest actors can feel the pressure of "dead air" - the need to rush, to fill pauses, to be clever; creating self-conscious, forced performance.
