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 “Fix My Audition” Class to help you stay connected and informed. Rance Wright (Performance and Auditions Coach) will be teaming up with Alison Franck (New York Casting Director; Grinch, A Christmas Story, An American In Paris, etc.) and John O’Neill (Broadway, Off Broadway, Regional Musical Director and Composer) for this particular class. This class will focus on your music choice and story telling. There is no better crew to take a look at your material and make sure you are making smart choices with your Audition material than Alison, John and Rance. We are excited to work with you and hope that you continue to make this class a continued part of your weekly programing.
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 then able to present material again.
