What song categories should EVERY actor have in their audition book?

 

As a rep coach, I constantly get asked the question:

"What are the song categories EVERY actor should have in their book?"

In fact, I get asked this question so often that last week I took to the airwaves to address it. (See the above video.)

My shocking iconoclastic reveal?

I don't think there’s a set list of song categories that belongs in every single person's audition book.

*CUE GASPS*

I've seen a number of these lists come out of different BFA programs, and I just don't think there's a one-size-fits-all solution.

I'm sorry, but you just can't convince me that I, Sara Glancy, need a Gilbert and Sullivan song in my book.

But you know what I do need?

Waaaaaaay more than 1 pop-rock song.

That one-size-fits all model DOES NOT FIT ME.

And I'm guessing it doesn't fit you either.

Which is why I created....

 It's a free workbook that will help you determine what song categories YOU specifically need to have in your audition book.

You're a different actor than your roommate. Why should your audition book look the same?
