What I did before my interview was to sort of practice some improv to get ideas about what looked good or funny or just plain odd. Although you can't know what they are going to give you to perform, it would help to practice looking hungry, excited, happy etc and also to think about what different character gestures would be. That's just what I did but I think it helped me be more confident when it was time to perform. Good luck!!

OK i got a quick question..

i originally planned on auditioning for a character, and when i did my over ze phone interview, the lady said she had to aprove me to be able to go? invite me to it or something, which she did, but she also said if i were to not get accepted as a character, it would take an aditional 4 weeks to determine if i got accepted as another role and my chances of getting what i wanted would go way down.. so i got all nervous on the phone and told her ok nevermind, i just want to make my chances of getting in higher..

WELL aparently you dont really need an "invite" to the auditon.. obviously ha but, i already got accepted into the program as something else.

SO HERES MY QQ.
LETS say, i go to the audition, and KNOCK ON WOOD get accepted as a character, would they just cancel me from the other job or would i have to .. call someone..? i dont know. theres probably nothing i would have to do, right?

guess im just a little curious help would be superb..
