A casting director has one day to find an actor to fill the role of a lawyer in a crime procedural. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of actors includes stage thespians who can't tone it down for the screen, performers completely unable to keep themselves in frame, and an actor who seems to believe this is a toothpaste commercial. Vote for who you think should get the role when you step behind the doors of a casting session in this hilarious comedy.

This all-new LiveScreen Theatre version of the hit Bad Auditions by Bad Actors was written specifically for actors and audiences to experience on video chat.

When the town of Smorgasbord is forced to close the public school system and rely on a motley crew of parents to homeschool all the children, the parents are thrown for a loop. Realizing that none of them are remotely qualified to teach a full course load, the parents decide to divide and conquer the subjects, resulting in a lecture on eighteenth-century European society delivered by a clown, a drill sergeant baking pies in Home Economics, and a lady who's had way, way too much caffeine zooming through 200 years of US History.

The Livescreen Theatre Edition of HomeSchooled has been updated especially for actors and audiences to experience on video chat.

July 27-31 Acting Activities with Aaron - VIRTUAL

Monday - Friday, July 27-31
4:00pm - 6:00pm daily
This camp will be held virtually via Zoom. A link will be sent to all registered students.

This class is going to be filled with challenging, drama-based activities. Many young actors have a fear of “letting go.” They have no problem acting silly, but looking silly accidentally causes them great anxiety. For many, their inhibitions kick in as soon as they move into “acting mode.” It takes a lot of encouragement and fortitude for them to lose their fear of looking foolish, not realizing that looking foolish is part of the fun. Taking a less-scripted approach to acting, Aaron will be guiding the students through activities that stretch their talents and broaden their perspective. Scavenger hunts, impromptu scene work, improv, character development, puppet shows, etc, will create meaningful learning opportunities. The activities will be geared toward getting actors out of their comfort zone and becoming fearless on stage. “It’s called a PLAY for a reason.”

Tuition: $100 + $5.95 service fee

This play-within-a-play opens with the butler, holding a gun, standing over the body of Steve Walters. The butler, John, assures us that things are not what they seem and that this is not a simple case of “the butler did it.” John introduces us to the other suspects: Steve’s business partner, his ex-fiancée, his current fiancée, and her friend. But that’s when the play falls apart, for the actors are as jealous, petty, and conceited as the characters they play. Your virtual audience will laugh heartily as they realize they’re not watching a mystery, they’re watching a comedy of bickering, egotistical actors who can’t even stage a mystery without murdering it!

Tuition: $200 + $5.95 service fee
