The purpose of the workshop is to teach participants a specific technique that they can use in auditions. Sybil calls the technique "picking the word off the page." This allows the reader to process information before speaking the words and without looking down at the page.
Sybil Moore will be leading this workshop. She studied at the Stella Adler Conservatory in Hollywood for approximately four years during which time she developed skills in voice projection, stage combat, stage presence, cold reading. This is also a topic she studied outside of the Conservatory.
