Audition Tips

  • To memorize or not to memorize? Yes - you should be 100% memorized for your audition.

It is always good to be memorized as you are then better prepared to deliver the best audition possible.

The more familiar you are with the material, the more effective your audition will be.

When the director is casting the show, they are taking into account your ability to memorize even more material - so showing your commitment to - memorize is very important.


  • Be as familiar with the play and the characters as is possible. Think of where your skills would best fit within the world of the show and try to pick a monologue for your audition that conveys that. Remember that all of these characters are real people - do your homework. Know a little about who they are when you walk into the audition.


  • Be confident – even if you have never done this before, the audition is a chance for you to show what you can do.


  • Be professional - stand for your audition, dress well, introduce yourself (full name, grade, and monologue you will performing). Make sure that you can clearly be heard.


  • If you are nervous, channel your nerves into good positive energy. It is important to remember that the creative team wants you to be great and wants to find the right fit for you.


  • Ask questions - it is ok to ask questions prior to your audition.
