Audition Craft with Ian Crawford
In-person auditions are coming back, and all of us can benefit from the chance to brush up on best practices and bring some life back into our dusty old monologues.
Ian Crawford is a Kansas City-based director and designer, and as the former Associate Artistic Director at Unicorn Theatre, he’s seen an audition or two!
Even the best actors can struggle with auditioning, which is unquestionably its own special skill. Ian will share his experience with how to prepare your strongest monologue and how to build your skills and comfort in the audition room. Participants will be given the opportunity to work on their monologues and be offered guidance on how to take their work to the next level. Bring a monologue you know inside and out and be ready to take notes on all the audition advice Ian has to offer.
March 4th 12pm to 2:30pm
@ The Arts Asylum 824 E Meyer Blvd

Artists are among the most vulnerable when it comes to financial instability. One way to combat that is to remove the financial barrier between emerging artists and career based education. Through our masterclass series, theatre artists living in the KC area can sharpen their skills, build professional relationships, and gain more confidence for their auditions/interviews, all at no cost.
Since the program began in 2021, KC artists have learned industry tips from Tosin Morohunfola, took a deep dive into Uncle Vanya with Nathan Darrow, and gained the basic building blocks of playwriting with Michelle T Johnson.
