   The Art of “Non-Speaking” Auditions
Saturday, Dec. 15th Master Class 

9:30am – 1:30pmAs we near the end of this year, we were surprised to realize that almost half of all Principal roles booked were auditioned as “Non-Speaking” roles.And just because a role is labeled as “Non-Speaking,” it does not mean it is “Non-Acting,” and it surely doesn’t always mean you don’t speak.Yes, sometimes the “Non-Speaking” auditions are some of the most difficult, nuanced and complicated auditions that an actor can have.

This Saturday Master Class will work on actual “Non-Speaking” auditions held at C&J Casting over this past year. We will discuss tips and techniques on how to master the Art of “Non-Speaking” auditions.

Give yourself the early Holiday gift of making sure that for next year, YOU will be one of the ones that book all those “Non-Speaking” commercials!
