The Awesome Plaque At The Entrance Of The Audition Space

Hey there, hero!

So…I got a call back to the audition I had the other day.

And as I walked through the door, I noticed a plaque that I’d probably seen 100 times, but never stopped to read and take in.

I was a few minutes early, so I had a chance to really see it. And I took a picture of it.

I think you’ll find it very performer-friendly…and useful.

Hope this helps!

  1. I’ve seen the same before and it makes me happy too. It reminds you of the accomplishment and the importance of celebrating the significance of being in the room. What I also love about this message is that it reminds you that YOU are supposed to be there and it’s common when an actor walks into an audition lobby to see a bunch of people there and start doubting why they are in the room. I feel like that sign puts it back into perspective that you are supposed to be there. Another sign I love is over at HBO casting which is a Stephen Sondheim quote from the musical into the woods. “Opportunity is not a lengthy visitor”. I love musical theater so it just makes me smile and I took a picture of it as well. It’s a good reminder to seize the day.

  2. Great message. I don’t think I’ve ever auditioned there or if I did I was present enough lol to see this plaque. I’m sharing it on twitter. I met you once David and you took me to lunch with great advice and thanks again. Anyway I’ve moved bk and forth from TX and bk out here in Hollywood My non-actor friends or newbies or in between stages ask me about this biz sometimes and this is a good message to share. Have ocasionally auditioned for a higher profile role and didn’t book it and this makes me feel better.

  3. I think 2019 marks a year of bravery. I don’t know that I would class it as heroics, but there is definitely a new sense of bravery to get out there and try new things. And not surprisingly it’s met with some degree of success. This is a good place.
