Have you ever auditioned for a musical? The musical theatre audition can be intimidating. They ask for a musical selection in lieu of a monologue and you only get a few seconds. If you’ve ever auditioned or want to audition for a musical, check out Rob Hanson’s workshop this Sunday. Rob has been auditioning as an actor and as a director for over 20 years. He’ll answer a range of questions on the audition process, if you’re not getting the parts you want or you’re nervous about auditioning, Rob will help you get on your feet.
In this session, Rob will take you through the finer points of auditioning: what you need to have ready, what kind of songs will get the part, and what manners are appropriate for an audition. This set of guidelines will help you in most musical audition situations to make you look like you’re the best for whatever part you are after.
