Cara Alvey's Actors Workshop

Private In-Person & Online Coaching

Online Coaching Sessions: All of the benefits of working with a Professional Acting Coach, but with convenient scheduling and the comforts of your own location!  With the developments of COVID-19 in our country, this featured service at CAAW has become increasingly popular.  Cara Alvey can work one-on-one with students on a variety of scripts from the latest movies, commercials, and TV shows. Or, some students choose to work on scripts for auditions/productions they are in.  CAAW is available to work through Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, and many others.  Reach out TODAY for special offers!


Actors will work on-camera and learn how to Slate, interview, improv, break down a commercial script, and how to work with products. Actors will also learn audition technique for film and television which includes script analysis, listening, reacting, creating a character, and making strong choices.

Private Coaching Sessions: Private Coaching is essential to prepare you for auditions, meeting with agents, casting directors, producers, directors, and/or theater companies. They are available on request with flexible scheduling. Sessions can be done in the studio as well as Skype or FaceTime.

Audition Taping

AUDITION TAPING WITH COACHING: Many auditions now are done as a "self-tape" audition.  Despite not being in front of a live audience, these can still be nerve-racking.  CAAW offers remote sessions with a flexible schedule to help you prepare for these.  In addition, CAAW offers private, one-on-one taping sessions where students take advantage of Professional Coaching and CAAW's comfortable studio setting to help you nail your audition!  Students can use CAAW's 4K camera and even have it edited with text, or bring your own camera or smartphone.  Highly recommended for those important auditions!
