Auditioning for TV with Thea McLeod (Neighbours)

Auditioning 1 day

This Audition workshop with The McLeod is an incredible opportunity to workshop your auditioning skills and receive direct feedback from one of Australia’s top Casting Directors Thea McLeod!

Thea McLeod is currently the casting director forNeighbours located right here in Melbourne. This audition workshop with Thea McLeod will cover auditioning skills and techniques to help you improve your auditioning process. You will learn how to approach a script and receive invaluable insights from a casting director’s perspective.

Many actors leave from an audition never knowing why they may not have won the role. This is a great way for you to receive feedback from casting director Thea McLeod to help you move towards the right direction and improve your approach to auditions.

Many of Brave Studios students have stated this auditioning course stands out from others with Thea and other Casting Directors, as they have ample one-on-one time with Thea. Unlike many other schools offering much shorter workshops with Thea, our class sizes are kept to a maximum of 16 students so you may receive the most out of this Auditioning Workshop.

We also ensure that this workshop is of a very high standard, so you will have great scene partners to read opposite in your mock auditions.
