Petra Siniawski is the UK Associate Director of WICKED and has been for the past 7 years. She has been responsible for overseeing the casting of both the WEST END and TOURING “WICKED” productions.

I first worked with Petra on the West End production of RAGTIME. I then worked with her again on THE PRODUCERS. I have also travelled to Italy with her to conduct AMTA Master Classes in Rome.

She was at AMTA today working with our students on audition technique in general and of course was asked questions about the WICKED casting process.

She had a few general audition tips:

– Come into the audition room prepared and confident (don’t apologise).

– Don’t give tons of choices to the panel, just pick one and go with it. If they want to hear something else they will ask.

– Downfall for many actors is usually not the singing but the acting through song and connection to the material.
