I'm in high school, and I'm trying out for my school play this week. I've never been good at cold readings, because I always pick some bad part to read and it's too short a time to get a feel for the role. I'm going to a thespian honor society cold reading help class on tuesday, but that's really all the prep I'm going to have before auditions on thurs and fri. I am really hoping to make it this time. My school is huge, and the play is definetely more serious than the musical. I'm not the greatest actress, but I do put a lot of effort and passion into plays when I do them. I went to Shakespeare camp for 3 weeks over the summer,and learned a lot of awesome things, but I don't really think Shakespearean acting can really compare at all to regular theater. Please give tips!! I'd really appreciate it.
