Decide! Determine which show you will be auditioning for by choosing from the list on our audition page. Then, look through the character breakdowns and choose which character you'd like to audition for. You can audition for multiple roles.
Sides! Within the dropdown for each character description, you'll find downloadable PDFs of the audition sides for that character. Download the sides. Review the sides until you are familiar with them and comfortable performing them.
Hide! Next, set up your space. Find a quiet space and prepare to record your audition using whatever recording software is available to you. This can be done on your phone if access to a studio or home-recording equipment is limited. Please record only your own lines, not those of the other characters in the scene(s).
If recording your audition as a video, ensure you are in a quiet environment with a neutral background. There should be no distractions. If recording your audition as
audio, you will not be judged by the quality of your audio, as we will record everything in studio. Actors can NOT edit their audition tapes or add special effects, music, or other audio.
Please slate prior to each side: "Name, Character, Side #". Each character should be recorded separately and uploaded as its own mp3 file. We would prefer not to hear a reader reading with you. Please label your files CHARACTER NAME-Your Name-Side#s.
Mp3 audio recordings preferred. Video audition allowed if necessary.
