“Okay, Now Drop the Script…” Improv in Auditioning

Saturday and Sunday August 11-12, 2018 – Savannah, GA.
Investment: $150/ both days. $100/ Saturday Only
10 AM – 5 PM.

We’ve all been there: “Seriously? It’s TWO LINES and one of them is ONE WORD?” No doubt, you’ve felt the frustration of “what do they want out of two lines!” The character is clearly important enough, or a writer wouldn’t have added it and a line producer wouldn’t have begged to kill it.

So you either coheres your friend to come over and tape you in this two line audition or rearrange with a babysitter to watch your child so you can go in-person and two days later, you get a call back. Great!

You show up, do the two lines and the director says, “drop the script and let’s do a little improv.”


A lot of auditions and call backs rely heavily on improv to see what else you can do with the character or perhaps bring to the table in a different role.

Regardless of the page count, casting will probably invite dozens and dozens of actors for the role and only one will be chosen. But how do you stand out?

This TWO DAY actors work out will breakdown scripts and sides to pull information you will need to deliver the sharpest performance you can involving improv in the audition or call back.

Participants will also be asked to submit self-tapes based on script pages sent in advance for group review and critique.

Participants will be given sides in advance to prepare as well as sides to be read cold.

Work out is led by Chad Darnell.

Because the fundamentals will be taught on Saturday, participants who can only do one day can choose Saturday only.
