Virtual Episodic Prep



DATES: September 3th-5th (Labor Day Weekend)

TIME:  9:00am-2:00pm PST

Workshops are among the best training options we offer. Episodic Prep was designed to help young actors make significant leaps in their audition technique and get invaluable feedback from our professional community.

Our Pilot and Episodic Prep workshops always sell out so check your calendar and make your plans NOW! In the past year, we are proud to have helped so many young actors attain their goals of working in television and film. Many former Prep Showcase Workshop students have leading or recurring roles on Raven’s Home and Cousins, Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans,  Jessie, Lab Rats, Kickin’ It, Austin and Ally and KirbyBuckets. On major networks, you can find other former prep actors on CBS’s Madam Secretary, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, NBC’s Splitting Up Together, SYFY’S Resident Alien, amongst others.

During the 3-day event, students will be immersed in a variety of classes including audition technique and improv, along with one on one instruction and coaching on their scene. On the last day of the workshop, students will perform their scene for industry guests and receive feedback. Each student will also get a copy of their performance recorded over zoom.

Please note this is an educational experience.
