Week 14: call backs

Call backs are fun! Sometimes.

I was fortunate enough to get called back to re-audition for a few plays in the NIF. This was my first time going through this process, and I learned a few things about it, in no particular order.

First of all, it helps if the director already has an idea of what they want for the character, and can actually convey that. There was one call back in which the director gave me two opposing ways to read for the character. I’m still not sure what she wanted.

Secondly, I am not great at call backs. I’m not good at interviewing either. This is not ideal when you’re looking for a job, so any extra practice I can get, I take.

Third, there are a lot of very talented people in the city. It was really cool to watch how different people read the parts. Kind of like getting to see a play for free.

Fourth, I’d like to try this again. Auditioning is fun, and it’s something I’d like to keep doing. Maybe I’ll get better at it, and maybe I won’t, but that doesn’t really matter, because it’s something I enjoy.
