Here Are Some Tips Below
Early Bird Gets The Part
Okay, so being early doesn't automatically reward you with that starring role, but it sure does impress the casting director. Make sure when you arrive at your audition you get there 15 minutes early. You'll beat the crowd, and most importantly, prove to your future director that you are
Look Professional, Not The Part
It can be tempting to put on a tutu and a crown when auditioning for the crazy neighbor role, but remember that casting directors aren't judging you based on your creative wardrobe skills; that's why they have costume designers.
Dress like you are interviewing for a job of a lifetime. Look clean, presentable, and business-like, so the agents know you are capable of impressing studio suit-folk. Don't put on anything you aren't comfortable in, though, as you want to be able to move around comfortably. So, skip the Jimmy Choos, unless you think falling over the edge of the stage will land you a comedy gig.
Before you audition, try to find out as much as you can about the company and the project you will be working on. Occasionally, casting directors will want you to tell them about yourself, and what a better way to impress than engaging them with a tidbit about how much you relate to the lead character, or how much you know about the previous Oscar they won (should you be so lucky). But careful, don't strap on the sweet-talk too thick; you don't want to be a brown-noser.
If you aren't sure about which part you will be auditioning for, and there are no materials there to work with, make sure you are prepared with a 1-2 minute monologue that shows off your range and skills. And don't get upset if you're interrupted, sometimes directors can tell how talented you are in just a few lines.
