Auditioning 101

An audition is an opportunity to showcase your talent and explore what you can bring to the character. Most actors and actresses place a great deal of pressure on themselves before an audition. Such pressure will likely cause problems including forgetting lines, a nervous tone in the voice, and not allowing the casting directors to see what you can do. It’s important to know that you may have to audition multiple times until you portray the right image casting directors are looking for. Many times, casting directors are only looking for an image or a look, and the actual reading of the lines are perfected later. If you forget lines or mess up your monologue during an audition, just relax and play the character. The casting director will get a feel right away if you are what they are looking for. Above all, act professional.

Another important tip to remember is to not read into the casting directors’ body language or attitude because that will play with your emotions and affect your performance. Most casting directors are extremely busy and have a million things going on at one time. If they aren’t looking directly at you or if they are eating lunch while you’re auditioning, don’t take it personally. Again, just perform to your utmost ability and you will get positive feedback. Have fun with auditioning as you will be doing it many times and, eventually, you will find you’re niche and the role you were meant to play.
