Audition Protocol

May 20, 2014

For most professional auditions there is a standard protocol. Here are a few of the basics; I'm happy to share others when we work together. 

-Arrive at the audition in plenty of time to go over the material once more and put yourself in the right frame of mind

-Know who's going to be in the room so you won't be surprised

-Leave the day and the rest of the world outside the room

-When you're called into the room, come in with a smile

-If you're not introduced, do it yourself

-Thank the reader; introduce yourself to him/her

-Don’t look directly at the director(s)

-Ask questions when you need an answer

-Don't be afraid to start over if you need to

-Make the audition about your work

-Acknowledge and thank the auditors
