Distance Audition Information

Select, prepare and memorize two selections, each approximately two minutes in length, from plays with which you are familiar.  One should be a role of the type you think best suits you, while the other should display your skills in characterization.  Make sure you do not exceed your total time limit of four minutes.

You may add 30 seconds to your allotted time for a musical audition. You may use backing tracks, piano accompaniment, or sing acapella.

Selection material:
Seek materials in all cases that demonstrate your basic performance skills: clear speech, animated movement, the ability to characterize.  Generally, a monologue which is in the dramatic present-tense rather than story-telling is more suitable for audition. Soliloquies are ready-made audition selections, but are not found too often in contemporary literature.  You may find excellent material in a dialogue scene with another character that, by changing a few lines to incorporate their questions or lines as rhetorical questions, will allow you to speak the entire piece to an imaginary partner.  Consult your teachers for help in making your selection and preparing your audition.  Evidence of imagination and preparation will be considered as part of your audition.

Your video should begin with the applicant stating their full name and the name of the play and the playwright from which the applicant's material was selected. To view sample video auditions go to http://theatreanddance.wayne.edu/theatre/auditions.php
