About the event

When should I adlib? How can I punch up an audition? It’s not enough to just bring a character to life, but when you learn to bring YOUR sense of humor to a read you can book the role AND the room. Learn how to think on your feet and let your funny bone take the lead! Join Kristin Paiva to learn techniques to help create unique characters and make informed choices that bring the role of a lifetime off the page, and into the booth.
