Be well rested. Do not stay out late party night before. Get a full night sleep. It not only help you look your best but it will ensure that your voice is strong. Dress up professionally. Not too racy or flashy.
Remember that the director will be looking at more than simply your acting skill they want to know what type of person you are. So well behaved to everyone .Bring a resume with you all times. Do warm up.. warm up your body and voice as would before a performance .
Don’t be over chatty When you enter the audition room. Unless otherwise instructed simply introduce yourself….
