What that part in the school play? Prior to the audition, find out how many parts there will be and pick two you really want. Then find out what you need to do to prepare. On the day of the audition, here are some Barbizon pointers to help you land the part:
- Wear something brightly colored that stands out. Make sure you review your lines before your turn.
- Be ready to let the director tell you what to do, and be sure to follow directions.
- Be ready to do your lines with other people.
- Be ready to do a different character. The director may think you are perfect for a part you didn’t even think of.
- When you read or say your lines, look at the actors you are working with not at your script.
- Don’t be afraid to move and be animated.
- Be sure your voice is good and loud so everyone can hear you.
- If you don’t get the part, ask to be an understudy or help backstage.
- Don’t give up. Keep taking your Barbizon Acting Classes and just do you best.
