How to: Audition –The Don’ts and a few Dos
• Don’t be late. Casting directors are on a busy schedule, and nothing gets things off to a rough start more than not respecting their time.
• Don’t be a jerk. To anyone—assistants, other actors. Represent yourself positively and professionally.
• Don’t think you don’t need to practice and can just “turn it on” in the room. Spend time getting to know the scene and rehearsing in advance.
