On Saturday, I went to my first theatre audition in YEARS. After doing an obscene amount of online research, I agonized over what to wear, and finally decided on a flattering tank top, circle miniskirt, and character shoes. I waffled back and forth with "Do I cover up my tattoos or not?" Finally decided on "not" so as to not deceive them.
When I arrived, it was obvious that NO ONE cares what people wear. haha There were only two other people auditioning (that day, at least. There were three days of audtions.) - one was in ripped jeans, dirty sneakers, and hadn't brushed his hair. The other was in ballet flats, a t-shirt, and yoga pants. I felt over-dressed, but maybe that's a good thing.
I was shaking like a leaf as they called me in. Started with singing scales (which I haven't done since high school), and then went into my audition song. They had me sing it twice - the second time, with specific direction - and I think I did well. They gave me a reading, and again, think I did pretty well. Then, they asked me to climax.
Oh, did I mention the show I was auditioning for was The Rocky Horror Show? Yes. They were trying to weed out the people who'd be scared by such a show. To do that, the last part of the audition involved being handed this book and being told, "Read this very provocatively. At some point in the book, climax. Go." It was funny as hell, dude.
Following that, all three auditioners (auditionees?) were brought into the room to learn a 32-count dance routine. I think I crushed that part. I'll know by Wednesday if I got a part, so wish me luck!
