What to prepare for your audition:
- Select & learn one monologue and one scene from contemporary film, TV or theatre scripts (no more than ONE minute each).
- You need to bring two copies of the scene and monologue with you: one for the reader/panel & one copy for yourself.
- Bring an actor resume, if you have one.
What to expect on audition day:
- It is an on-camera audition, in front of a panel.
- You will be in the room for a maximum of 15 minutes.
- You will be asked to present your two contrasting pieces (one monologue and one scene; not more than one minute each).
- We will have a reader off-camera to be your scene partner.
- Be ready to share and talk about your experiences as an actor or bring your creative resume.
Tips for the audition material:
- Find contrasting material/scripts.
- Look for a strong range in emotion/characters - for example, one comedy and one drama.
- Find characters who are age appropriate (in a castable range).
- Memorize and rehearse the monologue and scene (two-person scenes are best)
- Make the characters your own. Don’t recreate other actors’ performances.
- Remember, the monologue and scene should be no more than one minute each.
