Comprehensive Acting/Auditioning Workshops

In Ilene Starger's unique acting/auditioning workshops and classes in New York City, a limited number of actors work on stimulating material and are given tools every actor can use when auditioning for casting directors, directors, and producers.

Note that Ilene Starger will be offering classes in future for children and teens.

She will bring her workshops to other cities when her schedule permits.

October 2015 Workshop (New!)

• Monday Evenings October 5, 12, & 19

  7 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

  $375. for the entire workshop


• We'll do some work off camera, but mainly on camera, with all types of wonderful material, both scenes and monologues. Let me help you feel more confident in auditions, especially those on camera.



Topics such as choosing a head shot, audition etiquette and attire, preparation, listening, and how to get the most out of an audition will be covered. Actors will do both cold readings and prepare, at home, short and long scenes. Actors will read on camera and be critiqued, with additional takes and direction, so that each actor can polish his or her performance. Scenes from both films and plays will be used.

Suggestions will be given in the form of reading material, scene study, and watching films to be discussed in class. Actors will have the opportunity to discuss what inspires them and why they are compelled to act, as well as to freely ask questions about the profession and the process. Each actor will receive kind, candid, individualized attention.


Private Coaching and Private Consultation/Advice (New!)

In addition to my workshops, I offer private coaching at $150. per hour.  If an actor's budget is tight, I can, within reason, offer a small discount.

So many actors reach out to me with career questions, headshot questions, and questions about material and auditions. I am now pleased to offer private consultation at $125. per hour. I will evaluate your headshots and resumes; give advice and answer questions. For more than one session, I will give a discounted rate of $100. per hour, for a minimum of two guaranteed sessions.

If cancellation occurs for any reason, I must be contacted at least 24 hours in advance.
