A time to play, work, make new discoveries …GARY AUSTIN'S AUDITION/COLD READING WORKSHOP
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.

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.

GARY AUSTIN'S SEATTLE IMPROVISATIONAL ACTING WORKSHOP
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.
What if you could eliminate that pressure? In this breakthrough workshop, Gary Austin will show you a revolutionary new technique that allows actors and improvisers to follow their impulses, making their performances more real, more grounded, and more fun.
