In every acting audition, there are two kinds of auditionees—those who are prepared and those who like to think they are prepared. If you belong to the latter, you should ask yourself whether you really had put a lot of effort before coming to audition. If your answer is yes, consider the tips below as your checklist so you will come out of the audition hall successful.
1. Always bring with you your resume and a headshot
2. Memorize your material
The problem is when the production doesn’t give you a script to read prior to the audition. What you can do is be at the venue earlier than the scheduled time. If you arrive ahead of time, you will have enough time to read the lines and familiarize the character. Arriving early also means you will be one of the first few to perform, which is actually an advantage because if the audition has just started, the casting directors are still in a good mood at the time and they won’t feel rushed yet.
