San Francisco-Northern California Local Conservatory Presents
Audition Like A Pro: How to Turn Stage Fright Into Magnetism
with Holly Shaw


Do you find yourself sabotaging auditions with nervousness or freezing up during performances? If you get frustrated because you can kill it in rehearsal but for some reason inexplicably choke onstage now and then, it’s not a sign "from the universe" that you shouldn't be an actor. It's actually the opposite. Join creativity coach and hypnotherapist Holly Shaw to find out how your stage fright or nervousness can be transformed - helping you create magnetic and powerful energy in auditions, onstage and on film. Holly Shaw has over twenty years of experience studying performance anxiety, and has performed on TV, film and stages all over the world.

In this two-hour free workshop, you will learn:

  • How to quickly create a powerful connection between yourself and your audience
  • How to drop into the "optimum" mindset before stepping onstage or into an audition
  • Powerful tools for transforming stage fright into magnetism


When: 6 – 8 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21

Where: SAG-AFTRA San Francisco Local Office
350 Sansome St. Suite 900 (between Sacramento and California Streets)
San Francisco, CA 94104
