Bold Moves! Virtual Audition Coaching with Sophia Franzella
Actor (Anna Cole in ZM, Tweeny in A Proper Place)
I’m Sophia Franzella (she/her), a multi-disciplinary artist based in Seattle, offering one-on-one Virtual Audition Coachings! My personal approach springs from my movement-based and Meisner-training background. I have participated as a Reader in both fringe and regional theatre audition rooms, so I have a good understanding of what directors are often looking for (at least the part you can control). I also know that confidence and preparation are essential to performing well in auditions, and I would love to help get you there!
I’m currently offering private 90-minute virtual sessions for ages 18+. Please email to inquire about booking!
