Director: Next! What is your name?
Anna: My name is Anna Matteo.
Director: Are you ready to audition?
Anna: (warms up voice) Yes.
Director: Great. Let’s begin on page 1. Here is the story. You are lost in the woods. You are searching desperately for a way out. Suddenly, you hear something.
Director: Now, say your line.
Anna: ‘What was that? Hello. Is someone there?’
Director: Anna, you are speaking too softly. Can you speak more loudly and a little more, um, seriously?
Anna: Yes, of course I can. ‘What was that? Hello. Is someone there?’ Is that loud enough?
Director: Yes, that is loud enough. Let’s turn to page 25. In this scene, you are moving slowly and quietly through the woods.
Director: Anna. Anna! You are walking quickly and loudly. Walk slowly and quietly.
Anna: I’m walking slowly and quietly. I am walking…
Director: Anna. Anna. You don’t need to say “slowly” and “quietly.” Alright, let’s try the last scene. Turn to page 48. I say my line first, then you say your line.
Director: ‘You will never get out of these woods alive! Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!’
Anna: ‘Yes, I will.’
Director: Okay, Anna, you said that line — you said that line really late. You need to say it earlier.
Anna: Sorry. Sorry. Let me try again.
Director: ‘You will never …’
Anna: ‘Yes, I will.’
Director: ‘… get out of the woods alive.’
Anna: I was too early, wasn’t I?
Director: Yes. Yes, you were.
Anna: Director, how am I doing?
Director: You know, Anna. I think that I have the perfect part for you.
Director: The costume is in the back. Please go try it on.
Anna: Awesome! (Anna returns as a tree.)
Director: Oh, Anna, that fits you perfectly!
Anna: I’m a tree. I’m a tree in … “The Woods Are Alive!” Yes!
Anna: My new year is starting awesomely! Excuse me, Director! I have a great idea for my tree. Oh, wait! Until next time!
