Auditionees should prepare a SHORT (one-minute) monologue from a play or novel. The monologue should feature a theatrical level of volume and expression.

The play’s genre is historical drama/ adventure.  Choose an appropriate monologue with large theatrical ranges, preferably from a published play. No songs or poems. Monologues will be evaluated on volume, clearness of diction, depth of emotional expression, and comic timing or dramatic depth of emotion.  Ability of physical transformation is a major plus.
