Don’t Apologise and Be Original To Succeed in Theatre

To become a good actor, one must start in stage acting. The Broadbent Theatre gives an opportunity for you to be part of something special. It can be your stepping stone if you want to be cast in big productions such as Wicked or The Phantom of the Opera in the future. Here at Broadbent Theatre, you may even meet Jim Braodbent himself. Jim Broadbent’s latest appearances include Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as Professor Slughorn and Cloud Atlas as Captain Molyneux. 

There are a couple of things to consider if you want to audition for a particular role. First, you have to read the audition notice carefully for you to be aware of what is expected of you during the actual audition. If it’s a musical, then you’ll probably be asked to sing. A lot of aspiring actors, particularly those who already have the illusion of being superstars often disregard this very important reminder.

You can also ask for pieces of advice from other people who are also enthusiastic about the theatre. You can look for them online and set an appointment through various social networks like the one in foxybingo. The gaming site, aside from providing a wide spectrum of games also includes a community section for members to interact.

Don’t apologize

A lot of people are doing this. It’s true that an actor is his own worst critic. But you have to show them that you’re competent and not a weakling. Speak with confidence and be spontaneous. Try to imagine you’re communicating with your audience by maintaining an eye contact. Judges will love that. Just keep calm and relax.

Be original

Just recently, Rachel Berry on Glee struggled to prepare for her audition to take Barbara Streisand’s role in the Broadway remake of “Funny Girl.” During the actual audition, she realised that she has to be original. Instead of trying to imitate Barbara Streisand’s vocal styling, she performed the song that she really wants to sing—her rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”. She imagined how she performed the song for the first time with her friends and the judges loved her for that. She sounded authentic, which is the reason why she got a callback.
