When you walk into an audition room your energy is contagious, so it better be positive! You want to walk into any audition room and own it: make it yours, exude confidence, happiness, and positivity — even if you’re having a bad day — and you’re sure to get a callback. If you’re having a bad day, just turn it around by finding inspiration everywhere and remember WHY YOU STARTED.
This past Saturday night, my friend from college, Siobhan O’Loughlin, performed her one woman piece – “Natural Novice” – as part of Planet Connections. Her piece is funny, thought provoking, and most importantly: it reminds us that what makes us beautiful is our individuality.
While this is a theme that could be considered done to death, Siobhan gave voices (through her own) to all different types of women from all walks of life: this gave it a wonderfully fresh take. I was inspired by the piece because it was a unique and non-cheesy look at self-confidence and beauty. With a feminist twist to boot! So much of the theatre scene can seem preachy or high brow, but this piece was what I needed to see. I needed an ego boost this weekend, and now I feel like I can go to my auditions this week with full belief in myself. What more could we ask for from a piece of theatre and art?
