     TIPS FOR AUDITIONING     

1. Be prepared.
Remember, an audition for a show isn’t just an audition for that show.  You’re making an impression on that Director, Casting Director, Producer, etc. that could apply to other projects that they are working on now or in the future.  So even if you’re not right for that part, you could find yourself getting a callback for something else down the line.  And that’s why you always have to be on your game . . . which means doing your homework.  Because we know when you don’t.  And see, the thing is, it cuts both ways. Make the most out of every chance you have in front of a decision-maker.  This doesn’t mean you have to be perfect.  It just means that you’ve got to treat that three minutes with respect and be familiar with the material.

2.  Dress professionally.

You want to treat your audition as a professional experience, but you don’t want to overdo it either. So dress to impress. I want to see you on your best day.  

3.  Having a bad day?  Act like you’re not.

Seems simple enough, but I can’t tell you how many people come in complaining about the weather or how many auditions they’ve been on that day.  People have bad days.  I get it.  But you’re an actor, so put yourself in a positive mindset. Negative Nancys are not the most fun to work with. 

4.  Choose the right material.

Monologue books were made to make it easy for actors looking for monologues.  So, that means, a majority of people use them.  And that means you’re not going to stand out as being special if you’re the fifth person to do the monologue from Romeo & Juliet that day. Also, think about the genre of the play. Try to find material that would suit that style of the play. When in doubt, do the material that you are MOST comfortable with. 

5.  Auditioning is a special skill.

  The more you do it, the easier it can become. So set yourself up for success with a well-prepared audition and don't worry about the things you can't control. Aim to do YOUR best audition and make sure to treat yourself after. If it helps, think of an audition as your chance to perform.
