1-Day Intensive Workshop

The one-day workshop will be an all-day intensive, which will consist of lecture, audition technique, monologues, and cold reading. The first two hours will be a comprehensive dive into John’s philosophy of story and point of view, with an intense walk-through of the business— information from which actors of any age and experience level will benefit. Then every student will be asked to perform a prepared monologue, as if they were auditioning, which John will then critique. The last portion of the workshop will be devoted to cold reading and scene study, followed by a question and answer. Students will walk away with a broad and expansive understanding of the business, story structure, how to expertly break down a scene, and how to make an impression in an audition so that you get a callback and get hired.

The three day intensive workshop begins Friday evening will be four hour a meet and greet with John Homa and his partners Scott Sullivan (producer, Bohemia Group Originals) and Kim Paciorek (long time student and protege). This will be required for everyone attending the workshop (and open to parents and guardians of minors). This will be an introduction to John’s philosophy and will incorporate an expansive overview of the industry— including audition technique, resources for actors, and how an actor can create their own success.

The following two days are devoted to scene work. Students will be expected to bring a scene with TWO COPIES, one for them and one for a partner. Saturday will be cold reading. Each student will work with John breaking down the scene, understanding its structure, and gain point of view. Sunday will be scenes again, this time students are expected to be off book and will work more intensely with John. Saturdays will be five hour kid workshops in the morning and five hours for adults in the afternoon. Sundays will be four hours in the morning with kids and four hours with adults in the afternoon.
