Acting isn’t easy. It’s our pitfalls from self-doubt to insecurity. It’s why we create a space for mistakes. At MKS you’ll build your acting muscles. You’ll learn what moves you. And you’ll channel all your empathy and talent into every single scene.

Because that’s how performers grow.

The Acting Audition Track

The Acting Audition Track is fully comprehensive and includes everything you need to find success in the college audition process. From finding and developing your audition material to polishing your in-person audition, our coaches are here to help you every step of the way. Learn more below.

The Acting Audition Track includes the following:

College Preparation Assessment

In this session, our audition coaches will evaluate your skill set and provide you with helpful feedback to help you begin your college audition journey. Students and parents will have the opportunity to ask any question about the college audition process.

Audition Guide + Timeline Session

Our audition coaches will help you break down the entire college audition process from start to finish to help you understand it more thoroughly. We will cover college lists, applications, prescreens, important deadlines, Unifides, in-person auditions, and post audition expectations. You will also receive important documents and other resource tools to help you as you prepare. There will be ample opportunity to ask any question from our college audition experts—leaving nothing on the table in this private session.

Audition Material Selection

Our audition coaches will select personalized audition material specifically based on the your ability and type. This package includes four monologue selections.

Private Audition Coaching Package

Your one-on-one audition coaching package includes two 90-minute coaching sessions led by our expert college audition coaches.

Mock Audition Session

Our team of audition coaches will walk through your in-person (or virtual) call-back auditions. Throughout this session, we will focus on specific aspects that adjudicators are looking for—including appropriate material, attire, and how to conduct yourself during the interview process. This is a crucial step towards feeling 100% confident in your upcoming college auditions.

50% off all UP™ Intensives, Masterclasses, and workshops

We hold several workshops, intensives, and masterclasses throughout the year that further help students prepare for the next level. Upcoming courses include a six-week acting intensive in the Summer of 2021 as well as a four-hour dance intensive in the Fall of 2021. Email us at info@michaelkarlstudio.com to find out more about these opportunities!

STAR performing arts college database

You will have access to Theatre Audition Advisors' STAR platform which combines a database of over 340+ performing arts programs with the organizational tools and step-by-step instructions on how to navigate the college audition process. We provide a 45-minute demo of the platform to help you build the college program dashboard that best fits your goals.

Filmed Prescreen Session

This includes a one & a half hour, private prescreen audition coaching with two of our audition coaches. During this session, our coaches will guide you through your college audition material on camera in one of our prescreen studio spaces. Your prescreen audition will be edited for your college submissions.

Professional Headshot Session

University Prep™ by Michael Karl Studio works in direct partnership with Aaron Lenhart Photography. He is one of the top-rated photographers in Atlanta and we believe that his work presents outstanding professional headshots. This session includes unlimited looks and one professional edit.

Audition Wardrobe Session

Our audition coaches will help you select the perfect audition attire for your prescreens, callback auditions, and your headshot session.

Creative Resume

Our creative resume designer will provide you with a refined and professional resume that will set you apart from other candidates in the audition process. Our college audition team will meet with you in-person for 30 minutes to discuss your music, theatre, and dance background. This package also includes two rounds of edits and formatting for your theatrical resume
