Casting Director Michael Shurtleff, author of Audition, was famously quoted as saying, “The first step to a better audition is to give up character and use yourself.”
His student and talented character actor in his own right, Mike Kimmel, has translated that truth into a series of books that will help hone the skills of a teen actor and help them understand how to handle and explore stage and film.
