How to do your best in Auditions

How to conduct yourself in auditions

  • Be early. There might be a cancellation, and it keeps you from getting frantic.
  • Dress appropriately. Not as the character, but suggestive of it.
  • Have a great attitude. Both in the audition and if you don't get the part you want.
  • Remember it's a performance, not an audition. A good audition is a performance.
  • Be gracious to the accompanist. Always. Even if he messes up. And use him if he's there.
  • Be willing to try something new. Some leads last year didn't sing for the role they got.
  • Tell us a story. That means we have to hear the text clearly, at the very least!
  • Be prepared. Be memorized, and familiar enough with it that you've made choices.

When the audition is over

  • Things don't always go as planned. Feel good with any outcome.
  • It's really not about you. It's about fit, or chemistry with others. Not necessary your bad.
  • Be strong! Hearing no is part of getting to yes. Rejection is part of the game
  • There are always other auditions, and other roles. Other chances, other places.
  • Remember who you are. Your audition role is just a role, nothing more.
  • If you did not get it, it doesn't make you a good or bad person. Keep things in perspective.
  • Be noticed as a positive character you never know who'll be auditioning someday.
