Whether you have auditioned many times before or have never auditioned for a show at all we would like your audition to be a fun and memorable experience at CEC. We have put together some helpful hints to make your audition a good experience.
Please see our list of current auditions as directors of specific shows may require additional materials from actors.
Nonmusical Auditions (Straight plays)
Dress appropriately for the audition. Wear something you will be comfortable in. The director may have you acting out a scene in which there is a lot of movement. Speak clearly and loud enough so the director can hear and understand you.
Dress appropriately for the audition. Do not wear tight skirts, dresses or clothing that will impede your movements. Also bring comfortable shoes to wear. High heels and sandals will get in the way. Don't wear ball caps or sunglasses during the audition. These items are a distraction to the director. Wear clothes that you would work out at the gym with. If you have dance shoes Please bring them otherwise bring tennis shoes. CEC has facilities in which you may change clothes if you wish to bring them.
Have a Song Prepared -Choose a song that will emphasize your vocal range and will allow the director to hear you clearly. Even if you just sing Happy Birthday, practice it before you audition. During a musical audition an accompanist is available if you wish to bring sheet music or a CD player are also available.
