The Other Side of the Table: Audition Techniques for Directors, November 2021

Session 1: November 8, 2021 | 7pm - 9pm

Session 2: November 15, 2021 | 7pm - 9pm

The old saying is true: casting is everything. But finding the right actors, in the right roles, is easier said than done. How do you choose? What techniques can strengthen your ability to quickly and effectively match actor and role? And how do we change the process itself so that it reflects our creative and ethical values? The Other Side of the Table: Audition Techniques for Directors moves the selection process out of relying on instinct to skills any director can employ to attract talent, explore possibilities, and make the tough choices. Developed from interviews with dozens of acclaimed directors, agents, and casting directors, Artistic Director Gabriel Stelian-Shanks will lead participants in techniques to reveal unconscious biases, and offer pathways to ensure your production is inclusive, equitable, and diverse.


The class will take place in-person at The Drama League Theater Center in Tribeca. You have selected the participant option, which means you attend the class live in-person.
