Join the Ghostlight Stage Company as we present our very first educational workshop, “Storytelling through Garment with Eliana Batsakis.” Eliana was most recently seen competing on Netflix’ Next in Fashion Season 2! This fun educational workshop explores how to tell a story through costume and fashion design. Students will be taken through a history lesson with Eliana highlighting famous story-telling fashion & costume designers, do some sketching of their own inspired by a new story they create together, and take home some sample materials for future inspiration. Additionally, there will be a Q&A session at the end of the workshop where Eliana will answer questions about her design process, her time on Next in Fashion, and more! This workshop is in collaboration with Arts@ARCO and is FREE to the public. Anyone is welcome to join and make it a family outing, but the main curriculum is recommended for students 15-19. Smaller crafts will also be available for younger children.

Location: ARCO Cincy: 3301 Price Avenue, Cincinnati, OH, United States, Ohio

Cost: $40

Join The Ghostlight Stage Company for our second educational workshop, “Musical Theater Audition Workshop,” taught by Alyssa Batsakis and Andrea Davies. This 3 hour workshop will help students gain confidence as they enter the more professional audition setting and make the whole process a lot less daunting. We will break down the audition process from start to finish, review how to find, select and prepare your audition materials, go over healthy singing tips and vocal warm ups to help prevent vocal injury and loss of voice when preparing for your big audition, cover some “acting while singing” techniques that will help you tell a story with your audition piece that keeps the directors interested, have time dedicated for a mock audition experience with a live audition pianist and give coaching to students using our experiences as a professional actors and vocalists currently working in the industry. All this and more in this advanced 3 hour session!

This low-cost workshop is perfect for students looking to prepare like a professional and is a great way to jump start that college audition preparation or even get tips to help better prepare for upcoming school or community theater auditions! Workshop is for students ages 15 to 19.

Limited spots available!
