Auditions happen everywhere at every level, from middle school plays, to high school musicals, to college admissions. Audition styles range from prepared monologues, to cold readings, to group activities. No matter the audition, directors go through the same set of emotions, issues and concerns:
Will I be able to cast my show?
What am I supposed to be looking for?
How do I stop the kids from getting so nervous?
