Cold Reading Prep Practice in safety; during this workshop you will be handed previously unseen sides and prepare them as if you were participating in an actual cold reading audition.
But before you have to do this, you'll receive a bag of tricks (techniques!) to bring to the work.
No advance preparation necessary other than submitting your age range to facilitate the selection of scripts (please send an email to email@example.com with this information).
After the mock audition, you'll hear notes, ask questions, breathe easier.
Open to levels 1 & 2
