Honestly, I don’t have time or computer battery to write much today because – it’s tech week!
But this morning I read an article about actor Tessa Thompson and her “audition room trick” to get the job, and thought I would share it. In response to the question, “What’s your No. 1 piece of audition advice,” she said:
Just realizing that as much as they’re auditioning you, you are auditioning it [the part]. You’re seeing if you have something to say. You’ve done all this work in preparation, but when you come into the room, hopefully, it should be an exploratory time where you throw things at the wall, you let someone into your process, and you see if it’s a good fit for everybody. Starting to think about it that way really helped me change my perspective. I didn’t look at auditioning from a place of needing, it was from a place of flight.Backstage Magazine
Is that how you approach auditions?
What do you have to say? What can you throw against the wall?
What if you looked at auditions as an opportunity for growth, to serve the story and to serve the room? (With a big helping for yourself, of course.)
I have added more available times for Vocal Discovery Sessions – if you’re interested in pursuing Curiously Strong Singing with Mezzoid Voice Studio, see if there’s a time that works for you!
