Online registration for the 2015 Summer Young Actors Intensive is open and auditions are June 15, 2015! Auditions!!? No need to panic, we chatted with two of our students, a new student and an old student, about the summer auditioning experience, and this is what they told us:
Sammy: The first time, I was very nervous—I had never really auditioned for anything so I did not know what was going to happen. But, it wasn’t scary at all. The second summer, I was like, oh, I know what this is like.
Eva: No! We were told when we registered that there was nothing to prepare. So, then I really didn’t know what it would be like.
Eva: We filled out an audition form and we had our picture taken.
Sammy: Then, we were taken into a room with a small group of other kids and the teachers were there and we did some games and improvisations. It was really similar both times I did the auditions, so I felt really good about it last summer.
Eva: Pretty fun…If I hadn’t been nervous, I probably would have really thought it was fun.
Sammy: I thought it was fun. I liked the improvisations.
Sammy: It was hard—a lot of work, but it was worth it. I felt like I learned a lot—I’m much more confident than I was. I feel like I know something about acting now.
Eva: I made a lot of really good friends in the program—I hope I will see them again this summer.
