“The play [or musical] is the director’s baby…. The director must decide whom she trusts to “hold the baby.” Are you trustworthy and reliable? Will you help foster the child’s development and ensure success? When you walk in the door, you must communicate to the production team that you are not only talented enough for the role but you are also tenacious, enthusiastic, professional, and above all authentic.”
