What: Nik Walker is not only a recent alumnus of Broadway's Hamilton, Motown, Peter and the Starcatcher, and Ain't Too Proud, but he is also a graduate of NYU, one of the top schools in the Nation, and a current adjunct professor in their drama department. In this special College Audition Prep Intensive with Nik, participating students will get individual critiques on either their 16-32 bar song or their 1-2 minute monologue, as well as learning what college programs are looking for, audition technique, the importance of quality material, where to find it, and how to connect to it. He will also give in-depth discussions on the many different facets of not only college life, but the industry in the 'real world' post-college as well. If you are considering auditioning for University level theatre programs, you should learn from someone who went to one, teaches at one, and currently works in the theatre industry at the highest level.
