Your monologue audition should be preceded by an introduction including only the following items:
- your name
- the name of the play
- the playwright for each piece you are doing
You will decide which piece to do first, so come in knowing that; no need to ask us which piece you should start with.
"Hi, my name is Jane Smith; my first piece will be from ‘Summer and Smoke’ by Tennessee Williams, and my second piece will be from ‘This is Our Youth’ by Kenneth Lonergan."
We are often taping the auditions for other faculty members to watch at a later date, so do not be thrown off if you see a camera. You will need to wait for the person operating the camera to give you a go-ahead before you slate your name and pieces.
This is our first impression of you! Practice your introduction so you feel confident. Find out how to correctly pronounce the play titles and playwrights' names.
