  • You must submit a copy of the scene and monologue in advance for the audition reader to use.
  • Submit an actor resume, if you have one.
  • We will share more information with you on how to do this, once you have registered.

What to expect on audition day:

  • It is an on-camera audition, in front of a panel.
  • There will be a waiting room; please allow for a wait time up to 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 comedic and one dramatic piece.
  • Find characters who are age appropriate and realistic to your casting 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.
