The Complete Audition Book for Young Actors
A comprehensive guide to winning by enhancing acting skills


By Roger Ellis


 

Cover of
This theatre text is not a typical shake-and-bake manual of quickie tips on how to have a good audition.  No other book puts auditioning in the context of acting training.  The nuts and bolts are all here, but this book will do much more.  It will develop audition and acting skills in a systematic way over time, throughout the actor’s study and career.  This book is first and foremost an acting text.  It shows auditioning as another kind of acting performance, not a technical exercise or desperate attempt to highlight every skill or talent the actor possesses.  It is a step-by-step guide for training young actors to audition well by developing acting skills.  Includes more than sixty relevant acting exercises or “explorations,” as well as fourteen sample audition pieces from contemporary playwrights and a wealth of other resource material.  An all-encompassing audition text.
