WHAT TO PREPARE and WHAT TO BRING

  • See the detailed instructions below for what to prepare and bring for the each show's specific auditions.
  • Bring a headshot and resume if you have them; however, they are not required. If you do not have a headshot, a small photo would be helpful (but we won't be able to return it).
  • Bring your calendars. Our rehearsal time is VERY limited and only the conflicts presented at auditions will be accepted.

Questions & Resources

  • What's a monologue?: A monologue is a speech from a play where one character speaks for an extended period of time to another character, him/herself, or the audience. Actors are asked not to select a monologue from the play for which they are auditioning.
  • What if I don't have a prepared monologue?: Not to worry. If you've never done this before OR found out about auditions at the last minute, just pick up the Optional Monologue (male or female) from the envelopes on this board. Do not worry about reading the play the monologue is from at this late date. However, if you can find it, reading it helps.
