Youth can learn how to get the part of their dreams at the Audition Workshop, a three-session class for ages 13 to 17. The class will meet for three Saturdays from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Northern Illinois University Music Building and begins Saturday.

Participants gain invaluable experienced in this fast-paced practicum that offers advice on all aspects of the audition process, including how to prepare a monologue for auditions and movement techniques for the actor.

Teacher Amanda Long is a graduate student at NIU where she is working on a master’s of fine arts degree from the School of Theatre and Dance. She has worked as an actress and teaching artist in the Chicago area. Originally from Oregon, she has toured with the Oregon Children’s Theatre and Tears of Joy Puppet Theatre. She was an instructor at the NIU Theatre Arts Camps in 2012.

This and many other arts classes, music lessons, and ensembles for all ages are offered at the NIU Community School of the Arts this spring. The office is located on campus in Room 132 of the Music Building. For more information, call 815-753-1450 or visit
