Emerson College alumna, Chelsea Cipolla, co-founded My College Audition to help theatre and dance students put their best foot forward when it comes time to audition for admission into performing arts programs.
Chelsea co-hosted #CampusChat on August 17, 2011, and the "Takeaway Tweets" I pulled from the transcript include the following:
@ChelseaCipolla: Audition Fact: At Emerson last year, there were 750 auditions for BFA Musical Theatre and 23 Freshman started in the Fall. #campuschat
@ChelseaCipolla: A3. Typically, be prepared with 2 contemporary comedic monologues and 2 contemporary dramatic + 1 classical monologues #campuschat
@ChelseaCipolla: Pick a favorite playwright -read all of their work! You are bound to find an obscure play by a playwright you connect with #campuschat
@ChelseaCipolla: A6: Biggest no-no: NEVER APOLOGIZE. There is no saying sorry in Acting. Own your audition even if you feel it wasn't your best. #campuschat
