APPLICATION TO AUDITION

Applicants should prepare two memorized, contrasting monologues no more than 90 seconds each (total time 3 minutes). Please select from a published play, NOT a poem or short story. Please DO NOT choose anything by Shakespeare. Contrast in the monologues can be demonstrated through the type of character or the material chosen such as serious/comedic, contemporary/classic, urban/rural, etc.

Applicants should find characters close to their own age and try to become familiar with the whole play from which the selection is taken. Do not use foreign dialects. Do not use props or wear costumes. For help locating material, browse our website or email the department chair at searle@gsarts.net.

Adjudicators may interview applicants.  Applicants who pass the first round of auditions MAY be invited to attend a round of callback auditions where they will participate in improvisations and theatre games.  Students who are accepted into the Theatre & Film Department will be given an opportunity to apply for the Filmmaking track.  (You must be accepted into the Theatre & Film Department first.  Both Acting students and Design Tech students may apply for filmmaking).
