Got a big audition coming up?
Maybe you're considering going for the Frozen auditions? (See our post from earlier today!)
Or maybe there's nothing lined up currently, but you still want to be prepared for when it does!
Every Monday we will be posting a top audition tip, so here goes...
Every audition is different; sometimes you know exact what's going to happen and what you need to prepare, other times you could have no information apart from the date and the location (one would hope). There are so many things you CAN'T control in an audition, so focus on the things that you CAN control.
1. Know your material inside out
Who is your character? Who wrote the piece? What play/musical/film is it from? When was it written?
2. Research the panel
Who will be auditioning you? What shows have they worked on before? What is their role within this project? What do they look like? (You don't want to assume they are a runner, then realise it was the director!)
3. Find out where you are going- and get there early
CITYMAPPER. GOOGLE MAPS. We live in a world of scarily clever technology, so for the most part, being late is no excuse! I always aim to get to an audition an hour early, in order to make sure I know where I'm going and then have time to relax and get focused. There's nothing worse than going into an audition room panicked because you've been running around Covent Garden for an hour!
Do you have any top audition tips? Post them in the comments below and we will share them every Monday!
