Audition Day
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….
After Audition
Don’t rush out when your finished. Wait for additional instruction when you are finished with your prepared pieces. The director may want you to read from the script or may ask different question. It means that you have made enough of an impression for them to take some extra time with you.
Be greatful make sure to thank the director for the opportunity to audition………
