"The Princess and the Pea," one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales was released on May 8th, 1835.
This is a short, but fascinating tale about a prince who wanted to marry a real princess. Luck smiled upon him and sent a girl who claimed to be a real princess right to his front door. She knocked at the door of the castle, all wet from the rain and lost. The Queen presented to the princess one test to prove whether she is a real princess or not. The Queen has set a single pea under dozens of mattresses and blankets to see if the girl will feel the pea or not.
Are you Ready to be Onstage at Lionheart?
If you’ve been interested in diving into the acting world, then our auditions in Norcross are the perfect opportunity for you! At Lionheart Theatre, we put on a new production almost every month, and each month is different. You’ll have the chance to try your hand at a number of varying roles.
Lionheart Theatre Company is always looking for new faces to join our continuously growing acting family. Your level of experience doesn’t matter as long as you’re willing to learn and have fun. The right attitude can bring out the best in actors, experienced or not. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs to audition.
How to Prepare for Auditions
The best way to prepare for auditions is to know your character. Yes, memorizing lines is important, but understanding who you are portraying is what turns a good actor into something great. Take the time to sit down and research your character. What’s their background? What motivates them? How do they change throughout the play? As you learn more, try to apply this knowledge to your lines.
You can also work on your lines with a friend or family member. Don’t just read the lines aloud; try to make them come to life. Exaggerate your emotions, and keep your facial expressions in mind. If you can find a way to connect with the character, don’t be afraid to let it show! All of these efforts will translate well in your audition.
Lastly, be sure to work on your confidence. Every actor starts somewhere, so even if you have no experience at all, walk into your audition with your head held high. Chances are, doing so will help you shake some of those audition nerves.
