Requirements, Tips, and Pointers

Things Not to Do at an Audition

Auditioning is hard.  Putting yourself on the line for the chance at a role can be scary.  Walking out onto a stage alone in front of a dark room or a panel of directors can be unnerving.  Part of that is the fact that you just don’t know what to expect and / or what the director is looking for.  That’s just the way it is, but you can help yourself by memorizing and avoiding these common auditioning traps.
