The 2nd Annual Auditions Stories is here! And this is only part one…focusing on the Audition Book and debunking 5 myths about what this book is supposed to be.
- The typical audition book has at least 20 songs (or monologues).
- It must contain material from every genre and era.
- “Show your range” means to hit your highest note.
- You don’t need the full song in your book.
- It doesn’t have to have a table of contents.
