Summary
    Written by an actor and educator who has experienced thousands of auditions, and who also teaches in a highly competitive drama program, Auditioning for Actor Training Programs combines practical advice about every aspect of auditioning, from choosing an audition piece to preparing the audition itself, and includes interviews with twenty eight auditors who recruit for the most competitive actor training programs in the country.

    Part 1 begins by addressing audition preparation, particularly for undergraduate programs. Part 2 features interviews and gives readers insight into “the other side of the table.” Part 3 addresses expectations and requirements for graduate programs, while Part 4 presents interviews with graduate program auditors who discuss the specific types of students they seek. Part 5, written primarily for parents and supporters, offers practical guidance about how to have productive conversations regarding educational choices and future career options.

    With its comprehensive overview of the audition process and insight into the perspective of auditors, Auditioning for Actor Training Programs is an outstanding resource for students at the high school level planning to study dramatic arts in college, and for students and professionals preparing for graduate program auditions.
