It is important to look at the child’s motivation.
Explain in terms, matching the age of the child, what you expect going to take place.
Ask us we will help you.

We will do the audition alone with the child (depending on the age),
as the child behaves different with parents around.
Make sure you understand what is going to take place.

Pretend you are playing it. Children are very used to roleplay – and get it.
If you do not get the role….
It is not the end of the world.
