Actor Training

  • Select two contrasting monologues from a published source. Monologues should not be more than one minute each. 

  • Applicants will participate in a brief movement exercise as part of the audition. For those auditioning at regional unifieds, this will take place during their individual audition. For those auditioning on-campus, this will take place in group class format. Prior preparation is not necessary. 

  • Applicants will interview with faculty and should be prepared to initiate a conversation in which they share their reasons for pursuing this field.

Recorded Auditions
  • Select two contrasting monologues from a published source. The monologues should not be more than one minute each. 

Video(s) from a staged play will not be accepted.

Audition Tips

When selecting your monologue(s), choose material that is gender and age appropriate.

Read the entire work from which the monologue originates so that you understand the character and context well.
