First audition: Noon Preview
A few months ago, I joined a local actors' support group called S.T.A.G.E. They occasionally have a showcase called Noon Preview. Basically, there's an audition and then the show is two weeks later. Today was the audition and it went really well. I'm pretty confident I booked it, so I need to start preparing for the actual show.
The best part of the audition was I felt completely prepared. I felt totally calm and comfortable before, during and after the audition. Mostly, I think that's because my coach spent about 4 months helping me learn the technical aspects of acting and auditioning. I have no idea how many times he emphasized that most of getting bookings in this market is having good audition etiquette and being comfortable with the technical aspects of auditions, but he was right on.
Anyway, my first audition went well and I couldn't be happier with the result.
