Youth Theatre Audition Tips
Tips for Choosing a Monologue
- Pick a monologue that sounds like you. A good fit would be one that shows off elements of your personality and is somewhat like you.
- If your monologue is from a script, know the script and something about the character you are reading for. Read the entire script if possible.
- We prefer for monologues to be memorized, but if you’re not comfortable with memorization you can read your monologue from a piece of paper.
- If you need resources for finding a monologue, let us know. We have scripts and monologue books at the theatre.
Tips for Rehearsing Your Monologue
Be able to answer the following questions:
- Who is your character?
- Who you are talking to?
- Where is the character at?
- What do you want from your audience in the scene? (ex: to like you, to leave you alone, to believe you, etc.)
- How are you getting what you want? (ex: begging, demanding, soothing, find some fun verbs to use here).
As you rehearse:
- Practice reading the monologue out loud to make sure that it is no more than one (1) minute.
- When you are speaking, imagine that the listener is verbally or physically reacting to what you’re saying.
- Speak loudly and clearly.
- Practice your monologue out loud and in front of a few people before the audition. Ask them to give you feedback about what was clear and not clear in your piece.
What happens on Audition Day
- When you arrive, your parent/guardian will fill out an audition form with all the information we need from you.
- Six to eight students enter the playing space together. All warm-up and each take turns performing his/her monologue for the Production Director and Trike staff.
- Before you do your monologue you will say your name, your age, and what monologue you’re doing. Say these things positively and clearly for the director when you introduce yourself.
- The director may ask for you to do your monologue a second time. Listen carefully to any instruction given to you by the director and show that you can take direction.
- Arrive at least 15 minutes early to the audition.
- Wear flattering and comfortable clothes. Please keep your hair out of your face.
- If you make a mistake, try not to make apologies or excuses. Keep moving forward. It’s ok to start over.
- Have fun! Be positive and energetic the whole time you are in your audition.
