There's lots and lots about before the audition. Even I've written about it here! (And for those doing Theatre Bay Area Generals next week, that post includes a link to a great post about staging general auditions).
So what about after the audition? Here are somethings I try and do.
1) treat myself - I put a lot of prep and effort into auditions. So that effort deserves a reward - anything from a piece of chocolate to a fancy night out - any kind of indulgence that I can look forward too, just not one with a tight time pressure, in case the audition runs super late.
2) log it - I head over to my audition spreadsheet, and write down who was in the room, what pieces I did, and what I wore. If there was something specific I wanted to follow up on, I log that too.
3) assess - what did I do well? where can I improve? I like to make sure I give these questions a little time (rather than obsess about things I can't control). I'll figure out what I need to do to repeat (or change) my process for the next audition.
4) follow up(short term) - usually I wait a few days, then send an emailed thank you note to whoever was in the room. I might make comments related to projects that they are working on, give specifics on what I'm doing (offer a comp if I can), or point out my professional website and encourage them to visit.
5) follow up(long term) - I figure out how I'm going to continue my relationship with the individuals I met in the audition and the institutions that they represent - do I need to watch for a season announcement at a company's website? connect via social media so I can keep up on news and goings on for that individual? When am I going to follow up again after my initial thank you note?
For those auditioning at the TBA Generals, best of luck and break all the legs you can!!! I sincerely hope you make some time to plan a big treat for afterwards. You deserve it!
