The Acting School Audition

Once you've decided on the acting schools you'd like to apply to, you should start working on your audition. Here are a few pointers that will help you make the best impression on any acting school selection board:

  • Select more audition pieces than you need. For example, if you are expected to read one classical and one modern monologue, select two of each. Be prepared to switch in case one feels more appropriate to the occasion.
  • Don't chit-chat with the auditioners. If you are asked a question, feel free to answer in a friendly manner, but don't add on to the conversation.
  • Be respectful of your time slot. You may have between two and five minutes for your audition. Don't rush, but don't linger, either.
  • Be prepared. Do all warm-ups before you step in the room.
  • If you "go up" on your lines (forget them), don't freak out. Just pause and say, "I'll start again."
