GOLDEN RULES FOR AUDITIONS!
DO read the character descriptions and be realistic about if you are right for the part to avoid disappointment!
DON’T do a half-hearted audition or just read the part – we want to see characters who are interesting and engaging, and the sort of characters we would want to spend 3 hours watching!
DO make sure you have learnt your song if you are doing a singing audition
DON’T be nervous – you’re only acting to two or three people and if you make a mistake it doesn’t matter – we’re looking to see if you could play these roles after a few months rehearsals and not that night!
DO use your reading time before the audition to plan how you are going to deliver the lines and read it out loud with other people going for roles
DON’T assume that you have it ‘in the bag’ and so don’t bother putting much into your audition – we want to see your performance
DON’T assume someone else has it ‘in the bag’ - it comes down to performances on the day and how everyone fits together
DO choose a song that shows off your vocal range and lets you really sell the song – if you can sing high or low, have a good belt or a great pop voice then pick a song that lets us know about it!
DON’T just stand there – move around the stage and use your body language and gestures to sell your performance
DO have a go! If you fancy trying out then don’t assume that everyone will be better than you – it might be that you are just the person we are looking for!
