Congrats! We will make it work. Email us.

Can I post class footage on my casting profiles?

WAITLISTS

Why is there a waitlist to audition for classes?

 

We only allow 10 students in each class, and all classes are ongoing, meaning the students can stay in class for as long as they feel they are being challenged and developing as actors.   Each month, students must tell us by the last class if they are holding their spot for the next round.  If they are not, then we offer their spot to the waitlist, first come, first serve. 

 

Can I sign up for the waitlist of a class without an audition?   

 

Nope.  All students interested in adult classes must audition in person.  At the audition, we will tell you which class we suggest for you. 

 

Does the waitlist mean the class is sold out?

 

Not at all. It means we are "waiting" to see if the current round wants to sign up for the next round before we allow anyone else to sign up.  Current students get first dibs on holding their spot for the next round, and they have to tell us at the final class if they are staying or going.  We are just holding their spots. 

 

When do you notify the waitlist if there are any open spots?

 

We send out a link at noon the day after the final class of the current round.  We will send out an email as a reminder.  First come, first serve.  So jump on it!  We fill quickly.

 

If I don’t get into a class do I automatically get put on the waitlist for the next round?

Nope.  You would have to go online and sign up for the next round. 

STUDIO AUDITIONS

I auditioned for the studio more than a year ago but never signed up for class.  Do I have to audition again?

 

Yes.

 

Where can I find a one min monologue to audition for the studio?

 

Anywhere.  Google it.  Transcribe one from a TV show you like.  

 

What if I don't have a resume?  Can I still audition?

 

Yes, we prefer everyone to have a professional resume and headshot to audition. But we understand there are some who might just be getting started in their acting career.

I’m a professional working actor. Do I need to audition?

 

Think of it less as an audition, and more of a meeting with Lawrence Bierria. Lawrence loves meeting everyone and curates classes carefully, and this will ensure you get into the right class for you.

 

I can’t make that audition date. What are my options?

Email us at company@alamoshakespeare.org, and we’ll do our best, but Lawrence's schedule is pretty packed.
