Acting tips for auditioning with Monologues
When we audition for parts we are always trying to show as much as we can in as little time as possible. Young actors want to “show it all,” even when all the time they have in a room is 3 minutes. Here are some tips to help you with your monologue auditions.
Pick a monologue that speaks to you. If the monologue naturally moves you then that’s a good start.
Find a monologue close to your age and experiences. There is no one like you on the planet and you want to have a piece that show cases you and that you can do easily with confidence.
Work your monologue with a coach. If you are in acting classes, see if they do performances and perform the monologue for a live audience. Nothing builds confidence at auditions knowing that you have already played the role with success!
Tips when you get into the audition –
A monologue is a piece of time in the character’s life and you have dropped into their world and lived there for a very brief time. That feels good and you did well.
