run-through of your lines. If you spend the time before your audition chatting with your fellow actors, you’ll lose some of your drive.

How to Have Good Audition Etiquette
On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Joseph Adler and I'm producing artistic director of Gablestage in Coral Gables, Florida.
Let me talk a little bit about audition etiquette. First and primary, get there early. I think that is essential. I also think it’s important to sit in that space and be willing to take the time to look over the lines that you’ve been given.
Whether you’ve given them at the audition or whether you’ve been emailed them ahead of time, take the time, cycle down, get relaxed, concentrate on those lines and don’t spend all the energy and time socializing with the other actors. I see that happening so often. It dissipates the energy. You can be polite. You can have conversation but keep that energy focused on the material.
I think it’s also essential to be certain when you arrive there that your head is in the right place. I really believe that you can will yourself just as when you arrive there, you can concentrate on finding a good parking space. I really believe you can concentrate on knowing that this audition is going to go well. And this may sound terribly spiritual but I think it has an impact. It really does.
And the most important thing of all is actors have the face constant rejection. So take your best shot. And when you leave, feel good about it because whatever happens, the only attitude to take if you don’t get the role is they made a mistake.
Remember one other thing, if you're nervous, they’re probably as nervous as you are. They are afraid they might not pick the right person. So as an acting teacher used to say to me one time or many times, “Whatever it is, you can find a way to use it. If you're nervous, use it. Put it into the monologue. Put it into the work.”
And by the way, don’t ever let people make you read cold. I don’t mean read after you have a five minutes look over the script. I mean walk in, get handed a script and be told to read. If you don’t get the time, ask for it.
On behalf of tvlesson.com, I'm Joseph Adler, thank you for watching.
