“My daughter hasn’t been as excited as when she got back from the Goodspeed Audition Intensive in quite some time. She had absolutely nothing but positive things to say about the program and those who ran it, and sounds like she benefited enormously from the feedback. She appears all the more confident going into her college auditions now.”
-Eric Nielsen, Audition Intensive Parent

“I am so grateful for the incredible tools the intensive has given to me and I will definitely take them with me and pass them on to others as well. I found it extremely productive to work in groups and by the end I really felt myself rooting for every single member of my group. It was amazing to get to watch other people work and then to watch their audition knowing what work had gone into it. I would do the intensive again in a heartbeat not because I didn’t learn enough the first time, but simply because it was a unique and exciting way to work through an audition and it was so amazing to have such unbelievably talented people working alongside you.”
-Katherine Logan, Audition Intensive Participant

“It was so helpful I believe that anyone going into this field or even considering it should go through this intensive as it will help them to decide whether they really want it or not.”
-Jared Starkey, Audition Intensive Participant

“I came out of this program feeling that all of my questions about the auditioning process were answered. I feel as though I received top notch training and preparation that I will certainly use next year when auditioning!”
-Kendra Oates, Audition Intensive Participant

“The workshop was a huge confirmation that I am headed in the right direction. It helped me learn how to choose appropriate material and I’m far less scared of auditioning. I thought I was way behind but I genuinely found so much confidence at the workshop and am so excited for college. I look forward to working with more passionate people like the workshop staff.”
-Jonathon Garrity, Audition Intensive Participate
