Writer's Workshop

Vero Voce will now be offering an intensive Writer's Workshop for new writers of the stage and screen, as well as a chance for experienced writers to bring in their current projects to be reviewed and studied with a fresh set of eyes. The Workshop will be led by David M. Rodriguez, resident Theatrical Artistic Director of Vero Voce.

David, who has had two of his plays produced in Los Angeles, hopes to give guidance and instruction to new writers in the Northwestern Suburbs. Members of the workshop will focus on proper story structure, full character development, and the basic rules of creative writing. Any writers who would like to continue their scripts into a production level may enter their pieces into Vero Voce's upcoming "New Playwright Festival" in early 2014. More info can be seen on the auditions page of our website.

Audition Class

(No Prerequisite Required)
Maximum 6 students

Material is tailored to fit the student. Students will be emailed a "side" the evening prior to class, which they will prepare for their mock audition. The first few auditions will be from mainstream films the students may have seen. Scenes used for audition material later in the class will be completely unfamiliar to the students.

Instruction will focus on making the strongest decisions possible, based on the information you've been given. Students will be instructed on proper attire for specific auditions and what is considered to be professionalism in the theater/film community.

The class will be led by Vero Voce's David M. Rodriguez. David has been trained at the famed Stella Adler Academy of Acting in Los Angeles, CA. His training has earned him acclaim both on stage and on film, awarding him Indie Fest's Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in the film "El Percance Perfecto".
