The Audition Practice with Christy Faison

An Essential 8 Week Audition Workout

The Audition Practice is a remarkable opportunity to work with Christy Faison, one of the smartest, most committed, actor-loving casting directors around.

In these 8 weeks you’ll work mostly on camera and in a casting setting, figuring out who you are in any given scene. You’ll go deeper, get more personal, and bring your individual voice to any material in the most authentic way possible. You’ll dig in with Christy each week, mining what’s unique about you, then bringing your wonderful, specific point of view to the work.

Beyond the practice of reading in a casting setting and getting incredible real-world notes from Christy, you’ll get to pick her brain! She’s deep in the trenches of the industry and can tell you what’s really important in the audition and in the business.

Join Christy as you embark on an 8 week exploration to claim and express your bold, unique voice in your auditions. To bring you to the kind of work you are capable of all the time, no matter what room you enter.

From Christy

The audition process can be scary and frustrating. In this class, the goal is to address your fears and anxieties so that you feel good about the choices you make in the audition room. We will practice reading in every situation that may be thrown your way from cold readings to prepared scenes.
When I finished my last session, I was so proud of the work we all accomplished. I saw the growth and confidence each actor experienced. In fact, on a few occasions I saw it first hand when they came in to read for me in the “real” world.

It’s not easy to put yourself out on the line, but I will create a safe place for you. You will be challenged. You won’t be able to call it in. We will work hard. We will do this together.

After eights weeks, you will be your best self in every audition. And hopefully, you will feel like you’re not alone.


Most of the sessions will be on-camera, working with different material each week. You’ll explore pieces from film and television scripts. You’ll find where the material lives in you, how to own your choices, and bring your best self to the work. It’s the power of practice!
