In this masterclass we will be looking at all of those niggles that get in the way of you being your very best in an audition. Amongst many other things we’ll be talking about how best to represent yourself before you’ve even walked into the room, counteracting nerves during an audition, how to be properly prepared, acting through song, presentation and how to build the best relationship with a pianist.

After each masterclass, attendees are encouraged to make new friends and connections by socialising at Omnibus Theatre’s Common Room, which has free Wi-Fi, comfy chairs, a fully stocked bar with craft beers, soft drinks, a great wine selection and even two theatre cats called Molly and Tybalt (who are very happy to move to their special room if you have any allergies). Refreshments are available to purchase throughout the day.
