    Work Your Musical Theatre Audition for the PATA Generals with Natalie McClure & Reece Marshburn

    Join us for our FINAL audition prep workshop before General Auditions, which begin on April 13th!

    This is your opportunity to practice your pieces and be accompanied by Reece Marshburn - the very same accompanist for General Audition weekend.

    During the workshop you will perform your songs and get valuable expert feedback to improve your audition piece.

    By the end of this workshop participants will:

    • Perform your audition piece for a local musical theatre professional
    • Get individualized feedback and specific tips to improve your audition
    • Practice with the same accompanist who will be at General Auditions
    • Learn how to prepare your music and discuss essentials with an accompanist
    • Gain confidence to come to auditions with your best work
    What to Bring:

    • Your sheet music with clearly marked starting and end points
    • At least 2 copies of your stapled headshots & resumés
    There are only 10 participant spots available! If you register and can no longer make it, please email as at info@portlandtheatre.com so we can give your spot to someone on the waitlist. Thank you!

    PATA Board Member and Education Chair, Natalie McClure, is a semi-recent transplant to Portland after living almost a decade in New York City. Natalie is an actor, singer, writer, and producer who has performed in shows across the U.S. As an ABBA lover, her favorite role was Sophie in the Broadway sit-down Mamma Mia! in Las Vegas. Natalie spent years learning the audition scene in the toughest theater market in the world and is glad to announce that she came out alive. She spent time as a reader for ABC, where she learned from some of the biggest casting directors in the business. Natalie has performed with the Broadway Rose Theatre Company here in Portland and in several cabarets around town. She runs an all-female production company in New York that created an award-winning web series and has since pitched projects to several major networks. Natalie holds a BFA in Musical Theatre Performance and is a proud member of Actors’ Equity.
