Audition tips for the stage.

by Kenji Maeda on April 28, 2009

Sabrina Evertt of Twenty Something Theatre recently wrote a great blog with six key points when it comes to auditioning for stage.  Even if you strictly audition only for film, there is value in reading about her perspective about the casting process.

Starting off with the importance of showing up on time, and then bringing a hard copy resume and headshot, she delves into how it affects her decisions while casting.

1. SHOW UP ON TIME. Seriously. If you can’t show up to an audition on time, what makes me think that you will show up to rehearsals on time? Please don’t waste my time (or anyone else’s for that matter).

2. BRING A HARD COPY OF BOTH YOUR RESUME & HEADSHOT. Again, so many people show up without these things. If I see 100 hundred people audition for me, how am I supposed to remember who you are without a headshot or a resume?

If you want to be a professional actor, act Professional. Show up. Be prepared. Be there for your confirmed audition, be there for rehearsal, and be there for your performance. The flakiness here is astounding. And people wonder why many companies cast people they already have worked with or know. Finding a reliable actor that’s also talented is becoming far too rare. Actors- act professional or don’t bother. There needs to be a shared producer’s blacklist so that there is more accountability.
