Walking into a commercial audition may seem quick and easy, but standing out in a cattle call is a true art! In this workshop, students will learn how to use the art of improv to make a simple script their own and how to handle any situation that is thrown at them. Whether auditioning for a major brand or a local company, students will walk away with the confidence to rope in commercial success!!

"Mark Beltzman is the funniest and most talented improvisor that I have ever worked with. I have worked on stage with him at Second City, done radio shows with him, we did movies like "Red Heat" together, and half a dozen episodes of "According to Jim." Our scenes always got the biggest laughs."– JIM BELUSHI
