The first process of entering a musical theatre is through auditioning. We all know how daunting and exciting the experience can be. All the judges will have their eyes set on you, so it’s important you plan and prepare for a successful audition. So we’ve come up with the following list below with some tips and tricks you can use for your final preparations.
Research about the role
The first step is to find out what the judges are looking for in an audition. All auditions have different rules or require a particular theme or act. Be sure you have a clear idea of this. Otherwise, you won’t even pass the first stage. Due to the audition being a theatrical music audition, we already know that they require the main ingredients. These elements involve dancing, singing and acting.
Choose the best materials that go well with your talent
When you know the requirements for the audition, you can then find the equipment you need. The material you pick must go strongly with your talents. For instance, the audition requires an upbeat song. So find a song that you already know and be sure it is related to the theme. If you are familiar with a song, then you are most likely to perform with comfort.
Practise, practise, practise!
Last but not the least, practise! Practice makes perfect. Without practising, there is a chance you may forget or make a mistake during your audition. Making a mistake is the last thing you want to happen. Practising will also help you feel comfortable and relax before an audition. Therefore you are most likely to perform well during your act. You can practise in front of your family and friends as this will help with confidence as well. Also, make sure that you start practising with your material in accordance to what the judges needs.
