So, you want to be in the show?
Here are some important things to remember when you are auditioning!
Know the show you are auditioning for – what types of characters, what types of songs, where would you best fit into the show?
Prepare the monologue and/or song selection based on the style of the show.
Memorize and be ready with your ENERGY and ENTHUSIASM!!
Know the location you will be auditioning and arrive early.
Give yourself time to prepare and BREATHE before being called into the audition.
If the audition calls for providing a bio or resume and headshot, have those prepared.
If the audition is video-based or digital, follow directions about format and parental permissions.
Be sure to READ everything carefully so you know what to expect.
When you slate yourself, you are basically introducing yourself. Smile and look at the directors/audition panel. Be prepared to share your name, age, grade or other biographical information requested by the audition team. Also, practice saying the titles of the pieces you will present and their authors.
After you slate, find a point of focus to look with your eyes and present your monologue and/or song. Then make eye contact again with the audition panel and say, “Thank you.” Wait a beat to see if they have anything further for you.
