Even if you feel you know everything there is to know about how to walk through this process, you’ve been through many go-rounds or you don’t feel you need to brush up on your skills, attending a workshop can prove you wrong, and thus, is worth a shot. It can also give you the confidence needed to nail it the next time you’re in an audition room.
