Ever heard the line practice makes perfect? Well the same goes when you go for an audition in the hopes that you will find work on television, the movies or the theater. Here are a few helpful hints you should know.
An audition normally lasts between 2 to 3 hours. You have to signup and since it is on first come first serve basis, make sure you are there 15 minutes before the audition starts. This will give you some time to relax and practice your monologue one more time before they call you on stage.
While waiting for you turn, pay attention to the person who signed up before you because after him or her, you are the one who is going up next. If you have to wait for quite awhile, bring along a book and a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated.
Since you are guest here, be nice to everyone because you may never know who you run into. This goes even to the individuals who are vying for the same spot.
The nice thing about an audition is that unlike a job interview, you don’t have to go in there in business attire. You can wear something neat and comfortable. Never make the mistake of wearing a costume or something too formal.
