September Workshop
Sep 28, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

A 2 hour talk with Artistic Director, Myesha-Tiara. Our September workshop focuses on crashing EPA's (equity principal auditions). We still may be social distancing however the world is slowly starting to open back up and we want to help you be prepared when those in person principal auditions start again. If you think you can't attend an equity audition if you aren't an equity member or EMC then this workshop is for you. If you don't know what "crashing an audition" means this workshop is for you. Lead by our Artistic Director, Myesha-Tiara, who started crashing equity auditions in Chicago in 2017 and was able to join equity by 2019. We will discuss your best strategies for crashing auditions, what to do when you get there, and the EMC Program.
