The Audition Doctor of Backstage shares the secrets of successful auditioning for the musical theatre.

Fred Silver uses his twenty-five years of experience in the theatre, training thousands of actors, to give vital advice on:
-Choosing the right voice teacher or vocal coach
-Why auditioning for a musical is different from auditioning for a play
-Choosing the right material
-How to act a song
-What to sing at a callback
-How to handle the accompanist
-What to wear to auditions
-How to sell a comedy number
-How to handle stage fright

Plus lists of more than 130 excellent yet unusual songs -- including selections suitable for juvenile actors, romantic leads, character actors, comics, and performers who are primarily dancers.

With a foreword by Charles Strouse, composer of Annie and Bye Bye Birdie.

When Fred Silver writes, it is worthwhile to read carefully, and practice what he teaches. -- Donald Pippin, music director of Oliver, Mame, A Chorus Line, and La Cage Aux Folles
