'Pride and Prejudice' Audition Tips


AUDITION TIPS FROM DIRECTOR OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

Director Laura Mauffray Borchert has these Top Tips for Auditioning:


  • Read the audition notice to know what's expected of you. 
  • Be honest about your time constraints.  If necessary, we can tweak the rehearsal schedule a bit if we know about conflicts in advance.  
  • Research the play or read the script to get a feel for the characters and mood of the play.  
  • Be open-minded.  Your personality, look, style, and such might fit better in a different role than you had in mind. 
  • It's not necessary, but if you're available, show up for both audition nights. 
  • Be pleasant and get along with the other actors that you might be working with for the next couple months.
  • Leave your cell phone in the car; or, if you must have it in the theatre, please leave it turned off or on silent.  
  • If you mess up a line, continue on and don't let it affect the rest of your audition. 
  • Speak loud and clear; no need to rush through your moment to shine. 
  • Have fun.  When you enjoy what you're doing, it shows.
