Audition survival kit!!!

So you want the lead? You want to do your best but are really, really scared? We feel for you. But once you get past the adish, you'll have fun. So here's how to survive the auditionEmbarassed

 1. About three days before the big day, stop trying to hit all the high notes. Rest your voice so you don't get a sore throught. I know it's tempting because you r nervouse and/or excited.

 2. Drink tons of water and tons of tea w/ honey on the day of and the week before.

 3. When your moment comes, take a deep breath. drink some of the water you've been drinking all day. WARM UP YOUR VOICE. Stretch.

4. When you hit the stage, GIVE IT YOUR ALL. At the right moments, make huge arm motions, move your legs, dance, and get in character when you read. Do things differently than the kid before you. Remember that whenever you are on the stage, all eyes are on you, so live it up. If you forget lyrics/lines, improvise instead of locking up.

Remember that even if you don't get a part, you will have other chances!!

Yes! But dont show off. There are a lot of directors that appreciate an actor who won't be goofy when they are telling them what to do, so be polite.
