Tips for Choosing Your Audition Monologue
Choose material that fits you right now. Select a monologue that is age appropriate, allows you to express the uniqueness of who you are and speaks to your strengths or is in your sweet spot. A minute is more than enough, but if it’s longer thats okay too.
Choose a monologue that's active. An audition monologue should be active and in the moment, not a character telling a story or a memory.
3. Choose a piece that showcases your acting, not some other skill. We can tell from your
résumé that you have, for example, movement skills.
4. Choose pieces that have a clear arc. Don't choose pieces that are one note. There's nothing
that ruins an audition more efficiently than delivering a monologue that's one long, shouted,
angry rant or nonstop weeping.
