Group Unified Auditions/Interviews
In most of these, you audition or display your portfolio before a group of different producers and/or schools, then producers call you back for individual interviews. They are a great way to cast a wide net. ALL REQUIRE APPLICATIONS, usually due in late November! See websites for specifics. Also look at the bulletin board across from the acting studio for information.
