Acting Emphasis

Acting Emphasis in Theatre Arts or Theatre and Screen Arts Major

Prepare two contrasting monologues - one contemporary and one classical - that total no more than 3 minutes together. The classical selection could include works from Shakespeare, Moliere, Shaw, or any of the Greek plays. All material must be memorized.

A singing audition is not required for the Acting Emphasis audition, but you may sing if you would like. Please bring an accompaniment track on your phone or a CD, and sing 16 bars of a Broadway standard.

Acting requires the use of the whole body, so your video audition should include your whole body in the frame.
