BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - The Waiting: Post Audition Anxiety
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - Jun 13, 2016

Whether it be for a job interview, a sports team try out, or auditions for a show, we've all been kept waiting anxiously for results. "Did I do well enough?" "Did they like it?" "It would have been better if I had done this." Cue "I Hope I Get It" from A Chorus Line. You begin to over analyze the performance you gave. You crave a sense of approval and validation. The audition haunts you until you get that email, phone call, see the physical list posted on a bulletin board, or however the director shares the information. I don't like thinking that things are a "sure thing". If it's my first time auditioning for a group/director or they are a close friend of mine that I've sung for dozens of times, I always make sure to bring my A game and the nerves are still there. How do we deal with post audition anxiety? How do we deal with the waiting? Cue Sutton Foster singing that C# for a near fourteen counts in "I Know It's Today" from Shrek the Musical. (more...)
