Audition Information

Acting

Please prepare a contemporary monologue (a long speech made by just one person). The monologue should be no more than two minutes long.

It should come from a play script, and you should learn the monologue off by heart. You can find monologues in published monologue books and plays. You can get these from libraries or any good book stores. Please avoid monologues where the character is of a different sex to you, or that are delivered in an accent that isn’t your own. Avoid monologues from any musical or film script.

On the audition day, you will fill out an interview form, and have a welcome chat with one of the Theatre Directors. You’ll be shown around the theatre and see our amazing facilities, and might be able to watch current rehearsals and/or participate in workshops led by Miskin Theatre Directors and actors. You’ll then perform your individual audition. This needs to be learnt off by heart.
