Picture this: You have an audition tomorrow. You’ve prepped your character, made your choices, learned your lines, rehearsed with a coach… you’re ready to have a kick-ass audition. GREAT!
But… what about the tiny technical things that we often forget about? On this particular day, maybe you forgot that the FOX parking lot is a 15 minute walk away, so you arrived late, stressed out, and probably a little sweaty. So much for that great audition.
Once I had an producer’s session and didn’t notice it was on the opposite side of town from my first audition. There was a little panic, but I got through it and still made it on time (barely!). But it was in that moment that I realized so many actors come to auditions stressed out about things that have nothing to do with the audition! It’s time to break the cycle!
Today I’m listing everything you should be doing the night before the audition… from learning who the casting team is, to mapping out where you’re actually headed. These are often overlooked details that can make a severe impact on your performance. Get the full scoop below!

I hoped this helped, actors! It’s happened to all of us, but it doesn’t have to. With a little prep, you can sleep soundly the night before an audition and focus on what’s important: what you do in the room!

They’ll say parking is “only a 10 minute walk.” It’s never only a 10 minute walk. And I walk pretty fast.
