"Ginger Howard Friedman is one of the most innovative and important teachers of our time."--Jerry Orbach You got the audition. Now how do you get the part? What can you do to ensure getting a callback? And what can you do at the callback to demonstrate that you're the one for that role? In this invaluable book, veteran casting director-playwright-teacher Ginger Howard Friedman shares her trade secrets for successful auditioning. Through creative visualization techniques and exercises, she prepares you for that first, all-important cold reading, and using those same techniques, she enables you to tap into the dreams and goals of your character - and give the strongest audition you can. With her guidance, you'll learn: What tools to bring with you to a cold reading, how to prepare for a callback at your first audition, how to give your audition the energy of an opening-night performance, and how to get the part - and keep it. The author's exercises in creative visualization utilize scenes from such classic and contemporary plays as A Doll's House, Born Yesterday, Equus, The Lisbon Traviata, and Six Degrees of Separation. The techniques developed from these exercises can be used to prepare for virtually any role, whether on stage, screen or television.
