            Auditions remain a constant requirement in an actor's life, whether beginner or seasoned professional, and the attendant nerves and pressure to succeed in an intensely competitive industry is something that all actors need to learn to negotiate. This guide is aimed at those wishi...ng to undertake in-depth training to develop the physical, vocal, imaginative and emotional skills necessary for a varied career in stage or screen. Offering practical advice from the very earliest stages, it takes readers through the audition process to the moment of acceptance at a drama school. The second section looks at first steps into the profession and how to prepare confidently for auditions and meetings, whether live or by self-tape, so that actors can meet the professional environment with confident ownership of their skills. Topics covered include: choosing your school; selecting audition material and preparing it in depth; an analysis of a contemporary and a classical speech; the audition cycle and self-taping for video auditions. It also features practical and honest insights from casting directors, industry professionals and recent graduates, as well as up-to-date guidance for online auditions.

            The text of any Shakespeare play is a living negotiable entity: scholarship and theatre practice work together to keep the plays alive and vividly present. - Gregory Doran, RSC Artistic Director Developed in partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company, this Complete Works of W...illiam Shakespeare combines exemplary textual scholarship with beautiful design. Curated by expert editors Sir Jonathan Bate and Professor Eric Rasmussen, the text in this collection is based on the iconic 1623 First Folio: the first and original Complete Works lovingly assembled by Shakespeare's fellow actors, and the version of Shakespeare's text preferred by many actors and directors today. This stunning revised edition goes further to present Shakespeare's plays as they were originally intended - as living theatre to be enjoyed and performed on stage. Along with new colour photographs from a vibrant range of RSC productions, a new Stage Notes feature documenting the staging choices in 100 RSC productions showcases the myriad ways in which Shakespeare's plays can be brought to life. Now featuring the entire range of Shakespeare's plays, poems and sonnets, this edition is expanded to include both The Passionate Pilgrim and A Lover's Complaint. Along with Bate's excellent general introduction and short essays, this collection includes a range of aids to the reader such as on-page notes explaining unfamiliar terms and key facts boxes providing plot summaries and additional helpful context. A Complete Works for the 21st century, this versatile and highly collectable edition will inspire students, theatre practitioners and lovers of Shakespeare everywhere.
