It’s time to take it to the next level. It’s time to electrify your acting core.


The Audition Revolution Weekend

Audition. The very word strikes panic. Either you don’t get as many as you’d like or you get them but don’t book them. You’re lost, uncertain and drowning in self-doubt.

BGB’s Audition Revolution Weekend will turn what you think about auditioning on it’s head. These few days of mind-altering work blur the lines between your unique artistry and the often paralyzing confines of the audition process. Audition experts Risa Bramon Garcia and Steve Braun, along with Master teachers/Casting directors give you the tools to walk into the audition room, be fully seen, and move your audience with your talent.

One weekend can change everything!
