The audition is the most vital part of what you do as an actor. Brendan McNamara’s successful career as both an actor and casting director gives him a special insight into the audition process, which he shares in this fresh and insightful book.

Developed from Brendan’s popular workshops for actors, this practical and up-to-date guide gives you all the inspiration and advice you need to give a great audition.

Includes:

  • How to approach agents and casting directors.
  • The types of auditions you are likely to face.
  • The pitfalls of the waiting room.
  • The dangers of under- and over-preparing.
  • What to wear and not to wear.
  • How to deal with recalls.
  • The seven deadly sins of auditions.

“Auditions can be very painful, even humiliating experiences for an actor. Brendan successfully navigates you through the minefield of common mistakes that will often cost you the job.” Jamie Thraves

Fantastic Casting Director guide
Monday, 8 October 2012  | 

It's difficult to find a practical, hands-on book that details everything an actor needs to know and consider for any audition, but this book did exactly that.

It was also a welcome reminder about the "dos and don'ts" of castings, which is easy to forget if you've been in the business for some time.

Immediately after reading this I used some of the tips for an audition the very next week. Fantastic read for any actor in the business!

It's the Audition, Stupid!
Friday, 6 April 2012  | 

There are so many books out there dedicated to the casting process that are not very helpful, but this one definitely stands head and shoulders above the rest. I've been an actor for a couple of years and it gave me so many useful tips that I have bookmarked and will add to my personal notes to take with me to auditions. Thanks for being so honest about the casting process and injecting some Irish humour into it!
