Blanchette To Present Audition Workshop

The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre will offer a Monologue Audition Workshop for actors beginning Tuesday evening, May 28, at BRIFT’s Tequesta location. This course, taught by actor/director Beverly Blanchette, will cover all the topics actors need to know if they are serious about succeeding at their craft.

Blanchette, a Wellington resident, has had a fulfilling career as a theater arts educator including as dean of theatre for the Dreyfoos School of the Arts. She has directed over 100 plays and musicals and has acted on stage, film and television. She has been teaching the “business of the business” for many years and is an expert at guiding students in how to choose the right monologue to showcase their talents. Her course will teach students how to self-market, get an agent, choose a photographer, write a resume and prepare for an audition. This course will also cover the audition process for actor training programs at colleges, universities and conservatories.

The monologue audition workshop begins on May 28 at the Burt Reynolds Institute at 304 Tequesta Drive. The six-week course costs $150 ($125 if paid in full at the time of registration).
