Actors who have read Holly’s book are easy to spot. Their auditions are prepared, passionate, and compelling. They honor the material and make it sing by making it personal. This makes THE AUDITION BIBLE a gift, not only to actors, but also to the writers and directors who work with them.

Holly Powell has taken her years of experience as an actor and award winning casting director to craft an invaluable tool for the young performer as well as seasoned working actor. The Audition Bible takes the “SCARY” out of the audition process. Her insight and knowledge of the “business of show” should be the go to source in every performer’s arsenal. As a working actor for 35 years, I haven’t come across anything to compare to it. Kudos to you Holly!

As an actor and director, I have been on both sides of the rooms Holly Powell talks about in her beautiful new book on Auditioning. This is the clearest, most helpful Bible for the real world of auditioning I have ever read. The actor as athlete thread is inspiring, and I have seen first-hand the professionalism and grace of Ms. Powell in action and the terrific work done by her students. Bravo! Out of the park!
