Before you Audition

 

  1. Get an Audition Packet online or from the Theater, Choir, Orchestra, Band or Dance Bulletin Boards.

  2. Sign Up for an Audition Day on the Bulletin Board by the bathrooms in the Lobby of the Theater. Only sign up for ONE of the days, but you must stay the whole time.

  3. Visit andersontrojanmusical.org and review the Musical Handbook. If you have any questions, see Mr. LaVergne in the Black Box.

  4. Get to know the story/music.  Listen to the soundtrack. Watch the movie. YouTube the musical/music.  Visit andersontrojanmusical.org and https://www.mtishows.com/guys-and-dolls

  5. Choose one monologue from the ten options that you would like to present.  Monologues are in your Audition Packet. 

    1. Choose a monologue that you feel most comfortable presenting. At Anderson, we don’t audition for specific roles, you do your best, most confident audition and the directors will place you in the role that is best for the show.

    2. Your monologue does NOT have to be memorized. Memorization is an indicator of preparation and you will have a more dynamic and interesting presentation if you are not looking at a script, but memorization is NOT mandatory.

    3. Practice “slating your name.” At the audition, right before you present your monologue, you will need to say “Hello, my name is your first and last name and today I will be presenting monologue character from musical title.”

    4. The directors are looking for actors that

      1. Speak with loud volume and clear enunciation

      2. Perform with confidence and poise

      3. Create a character (show an audience what the character is thinking and feeling through voice inflection, emotional expression, body language, facial expressions, and blocking)

      4. “Make Big Choices” (present your monologue in an interesting and unique performance)

  6. Choose the audition music from the four options that you would like to sing.  Song selections are on pages 3-6 of your Audition Packet.

    1. Choose a song selection that you feel most comfortable presenting. At Anderson, we don’t audition for specific roles, you do your best, most confident audition.

    2. Your song selection does NOT have to be memorized. Memorization is an indicator of preparation and you will have a more dynamic and interesting presentation if you are not looking at the music, but memorization is NOT mandatory.

    3. The directors are looking for actors that

      1. Sing with resonant volume and clear enunciation

      2. Sing the correct notes and rhythm, and match pitch

      3. Perform with confidence and poise

      4. Create a character (show an audience what the character is thinking and feeling through voice inflection, emotional expression, body language, facial expressions, and blocking)
