There have several times throughout my career when I had to audition for work.
These auditions were usually for a series of on-going bookings or for a job as a resident entertainer.
My first big audition was for the entertainment company for a Festival Market Place at the Indianapolis Union Train Station. I don’t remember how many magicians auditioned for that job but I selected and worked that job for over 3 years as an atmosphere entertainer along with several other variety acts. I performed up to 25 shows every week. That gig gave me the chance to learn how to work an audience and refine my performance.
I also had to audition for a job as entertainer doing product promotions for trade shows and retail businesses.
The secret is to do the stuff that is YOU!
