It can be exciting and nerve racking to audition for a play. If you follow these tips the entire process will be smooth and less daunting.
- Do Your Research: Know the play you are auditioning for. Gather information about the characters and plot. The better you understand the characters the more you can put into the audition.
- Pick a Character: Decide ahead of time the type of role you are interested in. It does not matter if you only want a small part or want to be the star of the show you still need to be prepared for that part. You are more likely to get a speaking role if you seem to know your character.
- Know Your Monologue: Practice out loud in front of people who aren’t afraid to give you feedback. It doesn’t help you if people only tell you that you were good. You want honest opinions and help to improve your audition.
- BE DEDICATED: This is the most important advice I can give you. If you do the above three suggestions and come to auditions prepared it will show that you are willing to put in the time to be a part of a good production. You are more likely to be noticed if you are willing to show effort.
