  • Audition Requirements:
    • Theatre: 2 contrasting monologues for a total of 3 minutes.
    • Musical Theatre: 2 contrasting monologues for a total of 3 minutes and 2 contrasting songs.
    • Contrasting monologues are two very different characters with two very different goals in two very different situations, in two very different plays and two very different genres of dramatic literature. Contrast is black and white, night and day, not different shades of gray. Contrast can exist in:
      • Character
      • Objective
      • Genre
      • Situation
      • Type of Language
      • Movement Demands
      • Emotional Range
      • Mood or Tone of the Speech
      • Accent
    •  The more differences, the more contrasting. Be sure that the heart of each speech is actually different.
    • Musical Theater students will also dance, so bring appropriate clothes and shoes.
