The Wright Way introduces workshops as a valuable tool to enhance your learning experience. The Wright Way believes that workshops assist in elevating one’s performance, auditions, and technique.
At times like this, we must turn to each other to find ways to keep sharp on our auditions technique. So The Wright Way has created this online Audition Cuts: Words and Music to help you stay connected and informed. Alison Franck (New York Casting Director; Grinch, A Christmas Story, An American In Paris, etc.) and John O’Neill (Broadway, Regional and Touring Musical Director and Composer) will be teaming up for this particular class. We are excited to work with you and hope that you are able to join us.
FROM ALISON AND JOHN: “New song?” Want to make sure you are hitting all the right notes and telling a great story? This two part class can really polish that song up and make it audition ready!
Individuals interested in this class will be required to prepare 1 – one minute to minute and a half Song, fully memorized. Each student will be given the chance to perform in a safe space and will be given notes and possible new cut options and then able to present material again.
