DRAMA

The Audition will be conducted in a workshop environment. Students will be grouped and we will have some fun together and then perform from the monologue you feel best suits you.

PREPARE:
1.  Memorize if you can one of the monologues from the selected monologues 
2. A memorized song from music theatre to sing "a capella" (without music). Please note this is not a pop song or a song from a musical movie. (If this seems daunting then sing Happy Birthday or O’ Canada but making an effort with a song from a musical play would get you more noticed.)

AUDITION:
Performance of your prepared work – monologue and song.
PLEASE NOTE: Your comprehensive drama training does include an element of vocal training to develop the all-round performer.
