Workshops and Auditions

Audition Prep with Skye Brandon AND Audition for Saskatoon Indie Producer Panel

For the second year in a row Live Five is proud to offer a two-part Audition Workshop and Audition Panel this September!

Hosted by Saskatoon actor/director and Live Five founding member Skye Brandon, the workshop is designed for emerging and established artists alike to brush up on their audition skills, and then apply them by auditioning for a panel of local independent theatre producers.

The Audition Prep Workshop will take place over the course of two days on Saturday September 15th from 11am-5pm, and Tuesday September 18th from 7pm-10pm at the University of Saskatchewan Drama Department. Here, Skye will coach participants through the process of preparing for an audition, and work with each participant to strengthen their choices from entrance to exit.

Then, on Saturday September 22nd, participants will have the opportunity to show off their refined skills by auditioning for a panel of local Independent Theatre Producers (Buttered Ghost, Channel Theatre, Embrace Theatre, Fire in the Hole Productions, Hardly Art, and Wide Open Children's Theatre). This audition portion is open to any actor - emerging, established, or otherwise - who would like their work to be familiar to as many local theatre-makers as possible in one convenient opportunity.

"As an emerging artist, the Live Five Independent Producer Panel gave me a chance to meet local theatre makers, ask them for advice, and showcase my skill set. It felt more communal than your regular audition, and for this I am grateful to Live Five. Not only did I have a lovely audition experience, but I then got to be a part of the Live Five season in Death of a Salesman. This was a valuable experience as an actor, and being part of an independent production gave me insight into what it takes to be part of a successful show here in Saskatoon - insight that I'm sure will inform my future endeavours as a theatre artist in Saskatchewan. Don't miss this opportunity to showcase your artistry!" - Amanda Trapp, 2017 participant
