This model can be tailored to meet specific requirements.
Kerry has over twenty years experience delivering customised auditions for both small and large scale companies. Auditions may include a physical warm up, technique class, creative tasks and performative practice. Fully understanding the importance of the setting, Kerry sets the tone with sensitivity and professionalism enabling both the auditionee and the company to strive for their best outcome. She is regularly invited to sit on high-profile interview and selection panels.
