Audition Lab

The Phaedra Harris Audition Lab is for actors who need to work on the audition process. Taught by casting director, Phaedra Harris, who has over 25 years experience in casting both for film and television, actors will get key expert advice and feedback on the audition process learning how not to appear “green” while in the room.

Actors will be working on Cold Reading, Improv, Character Study and Script Breakdown while also receiving feedback on their headshots, agency/ management representation as well as marketing direction.
