How Not to be Nervous?

Question:
Hi! I need a few tips: I am going to audition for a musical of Peter Pan on the 20th of January, and I was wondering if you could give me some tips on how to not be nervous? Thanks! I asked you because I trust you, and you’ve probably spoke in front of large crowds. Thanks!!:)

I don’t know of any way not to be nervous, because you want to be excited, you want to do your best, and you and everyone else will be nervous.  Don’t worry about that.  What you DO want to be is confident–confident of your lines, your action, your delivery…  When you’ve gone over your performance again and again and feel you could almost do it in your sleep, you’re in much better shape than letting it all depend on whether or not you’re nervous.
