Auditions will be taking place over the next couple of weeks, and there can be a little stress about what your child needs to bring or do in preparation. I've auditioned for plenty of shows and have cast my fair share too, and here are my top three tips:
1. Students should know what they are auditioning for. Have them get to know the show: its music, characters, and plot. You can find all of this information on the Audition Center page on this website or on mtishows.com.
2. A good attitude. I know most of your kids from when I taught at ICS, but I want to know that they are going to a bring a positive and cooperative attitude. Remind students to be polite. I know an audition can be a nerve-wracking time, but try to remind students to relax.
3. Bring energy and fun into your characters. Remind students that their primary goal should be to leave a good impression, and to stand out from the crowd. Tell your children not to be afraid to make themselves look foolish -- that's what theater's all about!
