AUDITION READINESS SESSIONs
Are your headshots out of date? Can you not afford new ones? Are you not submitting to auditions because you don't have professional materials? Are you unsure of how to properly format your resume? Or even what info goes onto your resume? Do you have questions about the Chicago storefront theatre scene? Do you have questions about monologues or your type?
We're here to help! For one low fee, Three Crows will make sure you have a new, professional, and retouched headshot, audit your resume to ensure it is formatted with the correct info. We'll talk types, audition monologues, self-tape set ups, and answer your questions!
Three Crows is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Proceeds from audition readiness sessions will help fund pay-what-you-can theatre!
Cost: $250 ($50 non-refundable deposit to hold your slot, balance due 1 week before your session.)
Time: Each session is approximately one-hour long.
Photos: ~30 minutes
Q&A/Audit Session: ~30 minutes
Makeup/Styling: While we won't have a professional makeup artist, we will have a professional stylist who has worked both in theatrical costume design as well as on commercial and film sets and also the assistance of a professional photo stylist. The best headshots look like you, the you that's going to walk into the audition room.
Clothing: We encourage you to wear neutrals without strong patterns. Stay away from solid black. Bring a selection of clothing, jackets, etc. We will have some pieces as a backup. But wear what makes you feel your best!
Hair: We'll have styling tools for touchups such as a flat iron and curling iron. We'll also have hairspray, bobby pins, etc.
