Question: How do I deal with audition rejection!?
I auditioned for my musical this week!. I'm only a freshman so I'll get chorus part, but it will still upset me because people said that I deserve a main part talent wise!. But I really don't want to think about it continually so how do I move forward!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

As a freshman you don't really get lead roles!. But if you do have the talent to be a lead your director will cast you as one!. My freshman year, i know a girl who got a lead as a freshman!. So it's not impossible!. also someone told me for ever ten auditions you go to you will be rejected nine of them!. And I've found that to be pretty true!.I thought i would never do Professional work!. But ive been in the chorus of two operas!. And i loved it!. Chorus isn't a bad thing!. You will still have a blast!. Everyone will have their time to shine!.:) Break a leg at the audition!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Prove that you deserved it by being an outstanding chorus member!. Show up on time, give everything you've got, and offer to help out in whatever you can!. My school tends to give leads to upperclassmen, and a lot of the underclassmen really deserve it!. Don't worry, your time will come, but for now, just do everything you can to make your director say to his/herself!. "Wow, I really should have gave her the part!."Www@QuestionHome@Com

You need to move on!. Those who have told you that you should have got a main part are complimenting you, and are not the ones who have to make decisions!.
Selecting persons for leads is difficult!. You have several more years to be the star!.
Just being around the production you will learn a lot!.

Work on your image!. You have to be a go getter, with lots of confidence and at the same time come across as humble!.
Develop work ethics!. Never be late!. Never be absent!. Always be attentive!. Always show respect for others, even when you do not think they deserve it!.
I promise you if you go into rehearsals with an attitude, you will not be the star next year!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Okay seriously it will suck if you dont get the part!.
But still dont give up, you never know alot of people usually drop out of these things!. You just might get moved up!. :)

Good Luck!Www@QuestionHome@Com
