How to Audition Using Sides
On behalf of TVLesson.com, I'm Lori Wyman with Lori Wyman Casting and I'm going to be bringing you audition tips today from my new book The Organic Actor.
Let’s talk a little bit about Sides. Now for those of you who may not be familiar with that term, I’m going to spell it. It’s S-I-D-E-S, Sides. And sides are that portion of script that has your particular character on it specifically for your audition.
An actual script might have a hundred pages. And let’s say you’re audition for the role of the nurse and the nurse is on pages 10, 11, and 12. Well, we take those three pages, we put them together, we hand them to you and we say “Here, make an audition out of them.”
Keep in mind that your audition sides are not written as audition pieces. They are written as part of the script then it is your responsibility to take those three pages and turn them into an audition.
An audition needs to be like a three-act play — a beginning, middle, and an ending. Maybe you walk into it, maybe you walk out of it. Maybe you turn into it, maybe you turn out of it but you have to have a beginning, a middle and an end.
When you get your sides, the very first thing you do is you read the entire thing. You read your lines, you read the other person’s lined, you read all of the information in between because they are crucial little cues that can make or break that actual audition.
Now, my suggestion is that you memorize those sides. However, if you do want to hold the sides during your audition, it’s absolutely fine. If you need them, you have them. If you don’t need them, then you don’t need them. But if you have them there, it’s kind of like a security blanket. Nobody is going to penalize you for holding your sides.
You want to get as close to the delivery of that dialogue as possible.
