BWW Blog: De'Ja Williams - Audition Advice
by Guest Blogger: De'Ja Williams - Jun 19, 2016

Choosing the right audition piece is the most important moment of any actor's life. If you choose the wrong one you run the risk of doing poorly and not giving your brand the right face. This means that the director will not only not cast you in his or her show, but will also get bored halfway through your audition. Actors feed off of energy and a dead audience is the quickest way to kill the performance. One thing to always remember is that you are representing a brand: you. If you want to be cast and cast often then you have to look your best, act your best, and sell the brand that the director is looking for. (more...)

by Kyle Christopher West - Feb 16, 2017

Most actors receive a standard show contract for around 12 months, but that doesn't mean every actor hangs up their shoes and immediately walks into another show.
