Got an audition this weekend! by Caty on 28 February 2007 4:06am
 
Hey everyone, I've got my Illinois State University School of Theater audition this weekend, and I was just wondering if anyone had any advice to calm my nerves! lol

don't forget about your normal daily lifestyle. don't give all of yourself to the audition. that way it would seem more natural and you wouldn't have the dark cloud of "i gotta get this, i gotta get this, i gotta get this, i gotta get this" floating through your mind. if this conflicts with your style then ignore it because doing things your way is the best way to fend off nerves.

oh and don't drink too much coffee.

My suggestion, Caty, is confidence. You know your lines, the way you should be presenting the role. Be confident, but not arrogant. Directors will like confidence if they know they can work with you.

You have already acheived the first success...you got an audition!

Keep your balance. A little bit of adrenaline helps fend off nervousness, but too much and you could end up rushing through the lines. Best of luck!

Good luck Caty. Dont think about the consequences. Just try your best, theres nothing to worry about (I know that sounds stupid) but just enjoy it! When I go on stage, I eat an apple beforehand and with every bite I just smile and enjoy it. Dont be nervous- what have you got to be nervous about?(I know that sounds stupid too!) but if you laugh your way through the experience, you'll succeed!!!!!

Can I suggest one of the Bach Flower Remedies, particularly Rescue Remedy?

You put a couple of drops on your tongue, or have a couple of drops in a bottle of water that you sip through the day. It helps deal with any stressful event.

I find a shot of vodka usually does the trick ;)

Yes Blasi,but the shots get bigger and the effect smaller.Stick to Anne's herbal remedy!

Best of luck Caty.
