November 28, 2008, Newsletter Issue #141: What to Wear for an Audition

Tip of the Week

One of the biggest stresses of auditioning is not what to prepare, but how to prepare. What you say or do during an audition is just as important as how you present yourself. If you're uncertain about what to wear or how to look for an audition, consider these points:
What is the type of role for which I'm auditioning? You don't need to wear a nurse's uniform if you're playing a nurse, but a simple suit that mimics a uniform would work just fine.If you're not sure which role you're there to read, simply find out the age range of the character. Dress age-appropriately.
If there's no information about the role, dress simply and neatly. Avoid garish colors or accessories.
