#32: Ultimate Guide For Rejection And How To Deal With It
So you didn’t get the part.
You did all the work, you chose the perfect outfit, the perfect song, perfect headshot. You picked the perfect monologue and practiced it forwards, backwards, and sideways. You read the entire script, memorized the vocal score, and watched the film version. You go into the audition and absolutely blow the audition panel away with your effort and enthusiasm. The creative team looked absolutely thrilled and about ready to hand you the role…
And then. Radio silence.
Maybe you got down to final callbacks for a show, and the creative team decided to give that specific role to someone else. Another actor. How many of you are all too familiar with that dreaded phrase, “we decided to go a different direction…”???
Maybe Broadway World or Playbill just announced the cast for the show you were in auditions for… and your heart feels like it’s been torn into a billion pieces.

So what do you do now?
We've all been there... and it sucks.
Today, I'm discussing the 7 steps that I take when dealing with "rejection."
