MTS LAB 8 – 10 Febbraio: Audition Techniques for the German Musical

Prima grande collaborazione nata grazie alla partecipazione di “MTS” al meeting MTEA di New York!

Due professionisti con esperienza pluriennale a Broadway e in Germania, per un lavoro mirato all’interpretazione delle canzoni nel musical, e per un lavoro unico nel suo genere in Italia: come prepararsi e come trovare lavoro nel ricco mercato del musical in Germania.

“You ask me after 40 years theater experience, what Casting Directors want to see in an audition?

They want to see who you are, if they like you and what you can do – in that order.”

Kim Moke
