With prescreen deadlines and live college auditions just around the corner, College Audition Coach Tim Evanicki and Renowned Teacher and Coach Jodie Langel are teaming up to present BYOB: The Build Your Own Book weekend in NYC! Along with Tim and Jodie, students will work with Broadway actor and Coach Adam Kaplan (Newsies, Bronx Tale, Kinky Boots) on monologues and Broadway Actor and Chair of Musical Theatre at James Madison University Jacob Brent.
Students will participate in the following workshops:
- Preparing For Your College Audition Seminar with Tim Evanicki. This first-day seminar will help prepare students with all the information and tools they need as they dive into the college audition season.
- Build Your Song Book with Jodie Langel. Students will be asked to bring their existing book, and sing. The Jodie Langel (dubbed “The Song Whisperer” by University of Michigan’s Mark Madama) will provide that student with a list of songs appropriate for their voice and type to use for the college auditions!
- Monologues with Adam Kaplan. Students have the hardest time finding monologues for their auditions. Broadway Actor Adam Kaplan will help students find monologues that will be their perfect fit!
- Presenting YOU During Your College Audition. Tim will work with students on their materials to give them the tips and tricks on how to come across as your true, authentic self during your stressful auditions, when your instincts may be to do anything but that.
- Dance Prescreen workshop. In this 3 hour workshop, students will learn and film a perfect dance prescreen that can be used for their college prescreens with Jacob Brent from James Madison University.
- Mock Auditions. On the final day, students will participate in a mock college audition and will receive feedback from our entire faculty, including – you guessed it – even more song and monologue suggestions. This invaluable feedback can be used and applied while filming your prescreens or for your live college auditions!
- Looking for some extra help? Private coaching sessions are available with Tim and Jodie each day, as well as on Monday and Tuesday.
- Ready to film your prescreens? As an added upcharge, you can book a 90 minute prescreen filming session on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday with Tim Evanicki. You will receive your edited prescreens within a week, all ready to submit to your schools!
You will be asked ahead of time to send a video of you singing and performing a monologue so that the coaches can work on selections for you.
You will receive a list of local hotels when you register. Flight, hotel and travel are the responsibility of the participant and are not included in the tuition fee.
