It is the dream of every up and coming actor to go for an audition and wow everyone there. But the fact remains that auditions are scary and people find it difficult to face the judgy faces of the people who are running the auditions.

And that’s what I am, a person who searches for talent. As a director of some impressive plays and other episodes in several Series’, I am going to approach the subject matter from the point of view of you the actor and then mine.

I will tell you what you should do and then if you can remember all of it, you will be fine. After that, it will depend on how good you are.

  1. Picture and Resume

These are the things that I would like to see when you walk into the auditions. I will want to remember the actor who wowed me and I can’t do that if you are not memorable now can i? Do not approach without those two please if you want to get the part.

I want to know what you have done and all that will be in the resume and it will help me know if you are what I am looking for. I will not want to hear the same excuse that people give like ‘oh… I have an agent and all that’.

  1. Do You Have Your Lines?

Do not pretend to be in the clear when you are not. If you haven’t memorized the lines, do not come up with stuff just to show that you have gone through the script. If I gave out lines that you were supposed to memorize and you didn’t get them, do not ad lib.

I know that Ryan Reynolds ad libed ‘Smokey and The Bandit’ but you are not Ryan Reynolds, you are a fledgling actor who is trying to get the port, play by my rules and when you become a star like Christian Bale, you can bully whoever you want.

  1. Do Not Give Me an Excuse

So you had the flu and then your cable went out, I don’t give a ‘whatever’ about it. You will just have to do what you can and then blow it or impress me. It’s all up to you and how good you really are. Trust me, if you are first tier, I will know whether you are speaking with a plugged nose or not.

  1. Get There Early

I am a director which means that I get really hungry and grumpy and tired just like the rest of you people. You will have to come early. If you find me at my meanest in the evening, I will be too tired to listen to anything clearly.

In Conclusion-be the best that you can be.

    Take advantage of school theatre. If you’re in high school or college, there’s no better time to start your acting career than now. Get involved with school theatre as soon as possible. Sign up for theatre classes in your school if you can. Audition for school plays.
