Audition Tips

Before the Audition

 

Apply online

  • Visit SesamePlaceJobs.com to complete an application prior to the audition.
  • Reference the job posting in the audition notice.

Showcase yourself at your best

  • Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the posted audition call. You will be seen in the order in which you arrive, based on talent type.
  • Your audition begins the moment you arrive.
  • Auditioning can be a lengthy process; you may be asked to stay for an interview. Please be patient.
  • You are encouraged to bring water and/or snacks.

Choose appropriate attire

  • Appropriate clothing and undergarments are required to participate in an audition.
  • Costumes are not appropriate attire for auditions.

Auditions with a movement portion

  • Please wear form-fitting dance attire that allows a full range of movement.
  • Bring ballet shoes, jazz shoes, or sneakers. 
  • Stretch BEFORE the audition.

Prepare a headshot/resume

  • Bring a picture that looks like you. Heavy photo-shopping, dramatic appearance changes, etc. may pose challenges when reviewing your audition.
  • Please do not use selfies in place of a headshot.

Practice your prepared material

  • Prepare a one minute comedic, family-friendly monologue. Please no dramatic material.  
  • Practice your timing. Be sure not to rush the moments in your piece and remember that you're not just reading words... think about the emotion behind what you're saying and play the part.

  • Please do not improvise a monologue.
