To audition please improvise one of the following character breakdowns in your 20 second video audition:-
OPTION 1 – JANET (female role)
You just got hired at a new nail salon when you suddenly realize your boss is nuts. She might fire you over something trivial, even though she needs your help. You must convince her to let you stay. Improvise this scene!
OPTION 2 – ROGEN (male role)
You are the announcer for a local magazine that’s sponsoring the “best nail salon” competition. You host the manicure contest with flare, and extremely high energy. Make it fun- throw in some slang and “make it your own”. Do not be afraid to add some drama. Improvise this scene!
