PATA is offering our members an Audition Prep Workshop for the 2020 Citywide General Auditions. 

Our Audition Prep 101 workshops include panels made up of local theatre professionals who have attended PATA auditions as auditors, or served as panelists for PATA in the past. These panelists will provide individual audition coaching specifically intended to strengthen your auditions.

This workshop is for PATA members who intend to sing at the 2020 Generals. To get the most out of this workshop, plan to perform your introductory slate and the audition piece or pieces (totaling 2 minutes) that you're preparing for PATA's 2020 Citywide General Auditions.

In this workshop's open group setting, up to 12 participants may each share one long song under 2 minutes, one short song with one contemporary (non-Shakespeare, non-classical) monologue, or two short songs.

Expert panelists will offer each participant feedback, while the rest of the group and auditors will have the benefit of listening in. 

The cost to PATA members for this workshop session is $35 to participate. 

**You must be a CURRENT PATA member and use the email attached to your membership to register for the participating portion of our Audition Prep Workshops.

Both members & non-members can audit the class for $15.

Please read the below information regarding what to bring and refund policies:

If you are PARTICIPATING, please bring:

  • sheet music for the accompanist 
  • 3 copies of your headshot/resume
  • 3 copies of the lyrics and monologue text you plan to present
  • your prepared audition.

For tips on formatting your sheet music, please attend a free info session (a pre-requisite for auditioning at Generals if you did not audition in 2018 or 2019) or write to the PATA Office Manager (info@portlandtheatre.com).

If you are AUDITING, you do not need to bring or prepare anything.

Cancellation Policy: Workshop registrations cancelled more than 2 weeks in advance will be fully refunded. Cancellations made less than 2 weeks in advance but more than 48 hours in advance will be charged half the workshop fee (or, if it was paid, refunded half the fee.) Cancellations received less than 48 hours in advance will be charged the full amount and not refunded. Please send refund requests in writing to info@portlandtheatre.com. If you complete your registration, but do not show up to the class, we are not able to issue you a refund.

Thank you! See you soon!

P.S. PATA's audition prep workshops do not count as PATA info sessions. With few exceptions, attendance at a PATA info session is an eligibility requirement for PATA's Citywide General Auditions if you have not auditioned at PATA's Generals within the past 2 years.
