What's Happening This Week


Narrate Like a Pro
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
w/CJ Critt


As print books shrink and bookstores close, the audio book industry is growing and the
need for skillful narrators is growing, too.
S.T.A.G.E. is calling out to ambitious actors with good story telling skills who are
interested in getting instruction from an accomplished pro who will be teaching at
S.T.A.G.E. for the first time and offering the knowledge and secrets only a 20 year career in audio books could provide.

Ace narrator, actor and writer, CJ Critt, will offer an introductory class to professional
narration - THURSDAYS, April 30, May 7,14 & 21 from 6:30 - 8:30PM - where you’ll learn
from a seasoned pro what goes into making good audio, the challenges and privileges of being the ‘Voice of the Author’ and practical approaches to studying the script - that is book - creating and maintaining unique voice characters, establishing the right tone and pace, all to make the book expertly unfold as if it is happening right in that moment.

As said of CJ, by NY Times #1 Best selling author, Janet Evanovich, “You’re everyone’s
favorite reader!” Come learn from one of the best in the field, and the only teacher in
North Texas who can boast having played each character on every page for over 160
audio book titles.

Narrate Like a Pro. Are you ready?

Four Class Series - $160.00 - Each class consists of two hours of instruction and one to one coaching. Between classes, CJ will be available for brief phone consults at no
additional charge to assist students in their studies and professional aims.
