*Dear Actor: Please note that this class, as with all of our others, is specifically designed to educate and train, NOT to get you representation or guaranteed employment. If you are signing up for this workshop with the sole purpose of getting yourself in front of an agent or casting director, with the hopes of getting repped or an audition/job, please go elsewhere. 

June 28th 10am-5pm, June 29th 10am-5pm, June 30th 1-4pm | Early Bird: $399 | Regular: $449

The AUDITION GAUNTLET is a three day intensive focused on challenging the actor in ways he/she hasn’t been challenged before. The first two days will be 7 hours of focused script work, dedicated to improving audition prep, script analysis, and character breakdown. On the third day, each actor will rotate between three rooms here at Catapult, executing their scenes back to back to back for a Top Agent, Top Casting Director, and Top LA Manager via Skype. Most actors prep their scene, go in the room, and audition once. Actors never execute their scenes three times in a row… Until now.
