Hey! I just wanted to send a quick thanks to Sean and David. I took level 1 this past Fall, and I just got my first call back. The class was so incredibly helpful to me, and I am hoping to save up to take the next level soon. I just wanted to send a big sincere thank you because I know that just getting to this point means I have improved so much. Have a great day!– Devin
Thank you for a wonderful class over the last 8 weeks. I learned so much, and feel so much more grounded in this area of auditioning. Again, I really got exactly what I was hoping to out of the class: practical and applicable tools, a sense of knowing how CD's are thinking when they cast, and an empowering release of weird fears and self-criticism/editorialism. So for all that, thanks a bunch.– Elizabeth W.
Could you please pass this along to David and Sean. I just wanted to let you guys know that I loved your class. It was by far the most beneficial acting class I've ever taken. I can't wait to finish the program.– Leigh
Just wanted to mention I booked my first episodic (and my first SAG gig) with that new series shooting here, Betrayal! It's got the potential to be recurring (fingers crossed). Couldn't have done it without your excellent training, y'all! It's a baby step, but I'm steppin'...Thanks!– Jin
I just wanted to thank you two for a really great class and everything that you taught in this past 8 weeks. I feel like I gleaned SO much information in each one, really, and I appreciated being in a class with instructors who know their stuff, didn't waste our time and effort, and kept it real.– Emily
I can't thank enough my daughter's teachers for all the fun she had in class and the knowledge she acquired at the Green Room studio. Sasha booked her first (SAG) commercial two weeks after the class ended. She booked another SAG commercial shortly thereafter and is about to become a union member a month after turning 6! We will definitely take more Green Room classes down the road as they were invaluable for both me and my daughter!– Sasha's Mom
Taking GRPP Levels 1-3 was hands down the best money I've spent in the three years I've been acting. I used to make the same mistakes over and over at auditions. Now, I'm getting frequent callbacks - and I'm even starting to get cast in roles that are against type!– Annelyse Ahmad

It’s perfectly normal to get a little rush before or when you walk into an audition. It’s basically just a little shot of adrenaline that will burn off relatively quickly if you let it.
If you don’t know how to let it burn off, than you’ll likely try to repress the rush and that’s going to keep it from burning off. This in turn causes the jitters to hang around and get worse.
Just let the adrenaline play out however it happens too. Don’t feel that you have to hide the rush from the casting director. If it’s okay with you, then it will be okay with them. They know that most actors walking into an audition have the jitters. It causes bigger problems if the actor tries to repress the rush. Repressing causes them to become less spontaneous and that’s never good for an audition.
One of the things I focus on in Making The Audition Environment Work For You is how to work with the adrenaline rush rather than against it.
Over the years I’ve been surprised by how many actors don’t have an answer for this question. It’s like they have a yearning to act but they’re not sure what that yearning is about or where that yearning is leading them. When an actor does have an answer it usually has to do with something that they want to happen in the future. I’m pursuing acting because I want to be rich and famous or because I want to be a really good actor or because I want to make a living as an actor. Read more
