A Blog of AuditioNING TIPS and Resources
This month on social media I've been focusing on loving your audition material! Whether you're getting ready to embark on the college audition process next year and need to gather new material, you're a working professional or you're in high school and need to prepare for an audition, it's important to love what you perform.
Why? The auditors can always tell what you most love to perform. If you love performing a particular song (or monologue) it's always going to show in your performance. Sometimes, yes, you do need pieces that meet certain requirements, however, I've found, when you do your homework.....reading the play, libretto or listening to the musical, you will grow to love those characters because you know them. In turn, when you audition with those pieces, it becomes fun because you actually know the story you're telling and what are you as an actor? A storyteller!
Okay, so what do I do if I need some new audition material? Well, this month I've partnered with Contemporary Musical Theatre, the largest online database of contemporary musical theatre songs and writers. All the songs on the site are searchable by voice and song type. Subscribers can listen to full clips of the song, then purchase and download watermarked scores up to 3 times. Plus they are the only site that gives writers 100% of their song sales! They have some really cool up and coming writers. If you want some new material that isn't overdone, I recommend checking out.

Loving the process,
