You already possess everything to deliver your best performance under every circumstance.

My work over 20 years as a casting director provides a first-hand perspective on the expectation in your meetings and the audition process. My vocation as a professor, teacher and coach is to uncover what is uniquely you and provide the tools & techniques to deepen your work. My ministry as a creative and a collaborator is to dare you to share your gifts with the world.  

Bringing your whole self to the audition, authentically, uniquely and without apology requires keen insight into who you are; vulnerability in the work; sharing your story unapologetically. 

We will explore all that is meaningful to help focus your auditions and stand out from the rest while deepening your craft, including preparation, mock scenarios for handling situations you may encounter during your audition and through it all, showing up for yourself on your creative journey.

Four Weeks | 8 classes: $565. Let’s do this!

 My first session, a videotaped audition, resulted in my booking a great role opposite Paul Giamatti and William Hurt. Caroline helps you find the truth and simplicity of the material while opening you to subtle textures in performance. She is a gem!”  Steve Tom
