Auditions are just around the corner and the nerves and excitement abound! How do I pick a song? The character I want to play doesn’t have a side, what do I do? I’ve never sung harmonies, I don’t even know my vocal range. I have two left feet and dread the dancing audition. I can’t make my body move like they want, I’m always so far behind. What do I do? I’m terrible with reading out loud, how do I manage in a cold reading?
