If your teen’s New Year’s Resolution includes pursuing his or her acting dreams, this event might be a step in the right direction.

The Eissey Campus Theatre, 11501 Campus Dr. in Palm Beach Gardens, will host a free audition workshop from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 4. It’s geared for students ages 12 – 18. Students are permitted to prepare a monologue to get feedback.
