The Ultimate Audition Guide: Students

 You may be familiar with our The Ultimate Audition Guide: Teachers – did you know we have a student version?

Students go through the same set of emotions, issues and concerns when auditioning:

  • Will I get the part?
  • What if I don’t even get cast?
  • What if I forget the words?
  • How do I stop being so nervous?

The Ultimate Audition Guide: Students takes you through activities and exercises you can give students to prepare them for the task of auditioning for a show, program, or class.

Auditions don’t have to be nerve wracking experiences! Coach your students to prepare themselves to give their best piece ever.

What’s in The Ultimate Guide to Auditioning: Students?

Here are the sections:

  • Choosing material

    • What goes into choosing a great audition piece?
    • A senior extra credit exercise that will help your future auditions.
    • A class exercise in choosing appropriate material.
  •   Preparing material

    • What steps should students take when preparing a monologue?
    • Character Profile, Physical Profile, Vocal Profiles.
    • Preparation Reflection.
  •   On the day

    • Pre-audition exercises and a handout for students.
  • Dealing with the aftermath

    • How do students deal with not being cast or unexpected casting?

Not all students know what it means to prepare effectively for an audition. Give them the tools they need to do so.
