Hello!  I am new to the board and glad to be here.  Tongue  I did theater many years ago and now have a family of a husband and three kids.  However, I really have missed doing theater, so it happens there is a local community theater practically within walking distance.  And they have a great kids program too.  I have auditioned for four shows, but was only cast in one. I know of another theater nearby I am thinking of trying that is having auditions at the end of this month.  Also, they give the option of sending in a video audition instead.  This is the first time I have seen this option for auditions.  What do you recommend...the one in person or send a video?  For the video, they are requesting two songs, instead of just one.  So that would give me more opportunity for the director to hear me sing.  But at the same time, I don't think people "look" the same on really adds pounds, which I certainly don't need.  Plus, in the "live" audition, there is a possibility you will be cold reading from the script if asked.  Obviously, you can't do that on the video.  Since this option is new to me, I was wondering if anyone had experience with the video option and what your recommdations would be?

I think the video option is a bad idea all around. Try to go for the live audition. After all, if you get a part, you'll be doing a live performance. Video just doesn't have the same impact. - Them's my two cents worth.
