"Listen, I met a big player! We'll get big money for doing practically nothing!"
Lance Vance

The Audition is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by his brother Lance Vance from his hotel room in Downtown, Vice City.


Lance has found a new "player" who will inform him about any drug shipments sealing to the city. Victor drops-by while Lance is still talking on the phone. After a brief argument, the two drive to the King Knut's Burger bar where Lance calls his friend, Forbes, just as a couple of robbers arrive in the store shooting at everyone inside. The police arrive outside the restaurant while Victor kills all the robbers or leaving them behind so that they're not involve in robbery. Just as Vance brothers leaves the restaurant, the cops mistake them for being involve in robberies and they get away and get to the Port Authority Building, jumping on a ramp to the impound yard where Forbes' car is hidden. After saving the Sentinel XS belonging to Forbes, Lance drives away and thanks Victor, who is angry.
