It’s Audition Time and You’re Sick. Here’s What to Do:

It’s Audition Time and You’re Sick. Here’s What to Do:Nothing’s more frustrating than finally getting getting a great audition and getting sick. You put all this work into putting yourself out there and now what? Should you call your agent or the casting office and try to reschedule or just put on your best face and go anyway? 

Well there are many different opinions out there and and in the end, you’ll have to choose for yourself. But here’s the truth of it. 

Especially in New York, you’ve got thousands of actors pining for the same job. You as an actor, won’t want to miss your chance at the part. 

But then again, casting directors have a very different take on everything. They don’t want you to come near the building if you’re sick. They consider it a very selfish thing to do and a clear representation of your professional integrity. 

Even if it is with the casting director you have been trying to meet for years, don’t go. It is so not worth it. The fact of the matter is, if your illness will affect your audition in ANY way, don't go. The truth remains two fold. If you audition a sick voice, it may indeed be that voice the casting director picks is that of a sick one. You want to audition as your truest and most authentic self. 

Here’s the thing. I don’t want you to miss out on the audition of your dreams. So in the end, if you’re just on the edge of sick, you make the judgement call. If you’re definitely sick, stay back, call and try to reschedule. And to avoid the whole thing, take care of your health by eating and sleeping well. At the New York Acting School for Film and Television, we’ll do anything to see you succeed.
