Adult Workshops


Taught by Goodman Theatre's Casting Director, Lauren Port, this workshop is designed for seasoned actors wishing to fine-tune their theatre self-tapes and increase their confidence with in-person callbacks. By going through the audition process focused on a single role, from self-tape to in-person callback, Lauren will illuminate those elements of a successful self-tape and the importance of how one shows up in the room. 

Class #1: The Self Taped Audition 
Prior to Day 1, actors will submit a self-tape of an assigned audition role. During the workshop, Lauren will review each tape and discuss what is successful and what elements might be improved. Each actor will spend time working on an adjustment with Lauren.

Class #2: The In-Person Callback
Day 2 will consist of a "call back" of that same role. Lauren will then tailor the conversation around how one shows up in the room if the self-tape was what led to the callback.

This is a great workshop for actors to better understand the new normal of theatre auditions. Lauren is a strong advocate for actors and brings her experience casting numerous projects to her teaching. In addition to her work in theatre, Lauren has cast Film and Television. She is a five-time Artios Award winner, a recipient of the 40th Annual Media Access Awards, and a proud member of the Casting Society of America.

Required: Strong professional acting background. Admission is determined by headshot, resume, and self-tape audition.
