The audition is the first and most essential test of any actor's craft, one that is typically performed for a very tough audience, under conditions that are always less than perfect. This practical, hands-on guide by a veteran producer covers every aspect of the auditioning process: the monologue, the cold reading, the musical audition, and the interview. It shows actors how to see their performance through the eyes of prospective employers, how to sell themselves even before they step into character, and how to Interpret roles without outside direction.
