Tips to Make Your Audition Awesome now
- With your friends
- In front of a mirror
- Record your performance and play it back
- Comfortable in your performance
- Did you move around too much
- Did you move your hands too much
- Did you show any nervous habits (like flicking your hair)
- Did you know your lines
A FEW MORE SUGGESTIONS:
React to what the other characters say - this is part of acting
Say your lines clearly, don’t rush
Stay focused on your character
Use props (a purse, books, a scarf) if it helps get into character
There’s nothing wrong with being nervous
Practice your lines, but don’t be too dramatic – believability is key.
Be energetic, but not over the top - think about how you’d talk to your own friends about something and use the same emotions.
Be imaginative about your character, think about what they might be like and use those feelings.
