Time & Location

Nov 19, 2023, 10:00 AM – 5:30 PM

The Forge, 2424 W Montrose Ave Unit W, Chicago, IL 60618, USA


If you can't make Sarah's weekly Advanced Audition class or you're not at the advanced level, try her one-day audition intensive instead! The morning focuses on your prepared audition material, running your scene several times on camera and receiving feedback from Sarah in between takes. After lunch, you'll come back and work through a cold-reading exercise and wrap with a Q&A.

What you'll learn

  • Taking direction in a casting setting.
  • Using the frame to your advantage - Upping the stakes from entering from the side of frame, you'll learn to start and finish your scenes stronger.
  • Body Language - Work with Sarah on saying everything you need to say without saying anything at all. It's motion pictures.
  • Genre & Character Work - On top of the on-camera aspect, Sarah will work each scene, pushing for performances based on genre standards and deep character development.
  • • Time Control - Seriously. Ask her.

Who is Sarah Cayce?

Sarah Cayce is an award-winning director, Emmy-nominated producer, screenwriter, and casting director. Her second feature film, F*CK YOU BIG PHARMA is currently in post, but Cayce's debut feature film, HAPPILY NEVER AFTER can be seen on Lifetime Movie Network. Sarah’s been producing since 2010 for narrative, feature-length documentaries, dozens of commercials, documentary content for Bleacher Report (which sent her to the Rio Olympics), and for select narrative projects.
