Our Audition Tips

Our Audition Tips

Hello Everyone!

This is your friendly neighborhood theatre director and since it is audition season, I just wanted to pass along some tips to help you get the part.

Tip 1: First Impressions are EVERYTHING!! When you walk into the room you have to exude confidence! Hold your head up high and “own” it. Make sure you don’t shuffle your feet and try to speak as clearly as possible and make sure you are heard.

Tip 2: Show your personality. Speak in complete sentences and try to be as likeable as possible. Directors can always sense a little bit about your personality by how you interact with them in an audition.

Tip 3: Do your research. Make sure you know what you are auditioning for and prepare all the required pieces. If it is a musical, make sure you have a song with the accompaniment. Never go into an audition without at least reading the play/musical that you are auditioning for.

Tip 4: Loosen up! Relax your body before you walk into the room. Do a few stretches in the waiting area and try not to let your nerves get the better of you. If you walk in relaxed, the person watching you will automatically relax as well.

These are just a few tips to get you going. Don’t forget we have auditions for A Midsummer Night’s Dream: A Pop Musical August 30 and September 6 at 4:00-5:00 and September 7, 2019 at 2:30-3:30 and again at 4:00-5:00.
