The Audition

On the day of the audition, please wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to move and participate. Wear soft-soled shoes with a low heel. Do NOT wear jeans or other tight, restrictive clothing.

Candidates are asked to memorize and prepare two monologues. Each monologue should be approximately 1 minute in length. One monologue should be by a character from a play by Shakespeare. The other monologue should be by a character from a published modern or contemporary play. The monologues should contrast with one another.

As part of the audition process, you will learn and present a movement sequence. The audition will also include physical and vocal warm-ups, a cold reading, and improvised scene.

Please print our Audition Guidelines for hints on how to prepare for your audition. Included is a list of suggested monologues, though you do not need to choose from this list.
