The casting director for "Chicago, Pippin, Becket, Gypsy, The Graduate, the Sound of Music" and "Jesus Christ Superstar" tells you how you can find your dream! Absolutely everything an actor needs to know to get the part is here: What to do that moment before, how to use humour; create mystery; how to develop a distinct style; and how to evaluate the place, the relationships and the competition. In fact, "Audition" is a necessary guide to dealing with all the "auditions" we face in life. This is the bible on the subject.

About the Author:

The late, great Charles Shurtleff graduated from the Yale University School of Drama, where he earned his Master of Fine Arts degree. Then, he started work in the theater as a casting director and production assistant for William Hammerstein in 1957 through 1960, working on musicals for the New York City Center. Shurtleff served on Broadway as casting director on David Merrick Productions including "Gypsy" (1959), "Irma La Douce," "A Taste of Honey," "Becket," and "Do Re Me" (1960), "Carnival!" (1961), "Stop the World I Want to Get Off" (1962), "Oliver!" (1963), "1776" (1969), "Jesus Christ, Superstar" (1971), "Pippin" (1972), and "Chicago" (1975).

In addition to casting the films "All the Way Home" (1963), "The Sound of Music" (1965), "The Sand Pebbles" (1966), and the film version of "Jesus Christ, Superstar" (1973), Shurtleff wrote screenplays and directed "Call Me by My Rightful Name" (stage 1963, film 1973). He also cast the critically acclaimed television series starring George C. Scott and Cicely Tyson, "East Side/West Side" (1963), and the brilliant casting of Dustin Hoffman as the lead in the film "The Graduate" (1975).
