How do I gain confidence in an audition?June 29, 2020
I am fourteen years old, and I have an enormous passion in musical theater. I find it exhilarating to be on stage, and have no trouble with that at all. My only problem is that I cannot do auditions. I feel confident seconds before it is my turn to audition, but once I get up there, I try to sing my number, and I completely freeze. My throat closes up, my hands become clammy and sweaty, and I end up apologizing after about three notes, and walking out. I feel crushed, because I dream more than anything else on earth to be on stage, but I simply lack the confidence during auditions. If anybody has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
