NAILING YOUR AUDITIONS JUST GOT EASIER…

You are just moments away from ser­i­ously improv­ing your audi­tion suc­cess rate!

DO YOU KNOW THIS FEELING?

  • You are a trained actor and KNOW you have what it takes but you often fall apart at the last hurdle…
  • You are headed to drama school and have no clue if you have pre­pared your pieces properly…
  • You are abso­lutely fine once you get the job but can’t seem to reach the same sense of free­dom in the cast­ing room…
  • Being out of work sends you into a depress­ive spin which only leads to bigger pres­sure when a rare audi­tion arrives…

LUCKILY — YOU NEED NEVER FEEL THAT WAY AGAIN!

‘ICAT Coffee Club sound too good to be true??? Well I can assure you not only is it true but it WORKS!!! And it’s the best investment I have made into my career. Thanks to the continuous workshops on 'ownership', extensive monologue library and absolute golden nuggets of insight that they lend so freely - I’ve managed to not only land my first cinema release movie role as a principle member BUT have also been shortlisted for several and won a place at a major British drama school'

Who the Coffee Club is for…

 

  • Actors at ANY stage of their career who want to deepen their under­stand­ing of the craft and stand on a solid, reli­able toolkit
  • Actors who want to elim­in­ate the fear and not waste ANY audi­tion opportunity 
  • Actors who want to know that they can bring out truth­ful rela­tion­ship on demand whatever the cir­cum­stances and win those roles!
  • Anyone pre­par­ing for drama school auditions
  • Those who are pre­pared to dig into the resources and put in the work!

Who the Coffee Club is NOT for…

 

  • Anyone who is solely inter­ested in fame

  • Those who are not pre­pared to turn up to ses­sions, get involved with the com­munity or get stuck into the material
  • Anyone expect­ing guar­an­teed res­ults. This stuff abso­lutely works for us and the mem­bers who are repeatedly land­ing roles and oppor­tun­it­ies by apply­ing the train­ing but under­stand­ably, we cannot guar­an­tee an out­come for you as an indi­vidu­al. No one can!

‘Not only did (this training) massively help with nerves at my last audition, but here's the big payoff... I was really happy with my performance, so much so that I'm not experiencing that usual weight while I wait to hear back. If I get to do it again on set that will be awesome, but I don't NEED to if that makes sense. Obviously I need to earn a living but we all know we audition far more than we get jobs so this feeling is a game changer!
