Drama Audition Instructions
Each audition must be composted of two sections. The first section must be the artistic interview and the second section must be the artistic performance. Auditions can run no longer than ten minutes total. The performance (Section II) must not be shorter than five (5) minutes. However, unused time from the interview (Section I) may be used in Section II.
Section One: The Artistic Interview
Each applicant should discuss the following statements conversationally on the audition. Please do not have someone "interview" you. The applicant should be alone. Be creative, within reason. Use this interview time to reveal your personality, interests, experiences, and passions. The judges want to know "who you are." However, the material you include on your audition must be in good taste. Please speak clearly.
- State your name.
- Who is your favorite playwright? Why?
- What interests you most about drama?
- List your experience in drama over the past two years.
- What role would you most like to play someday? Why?
Section Two: The Artistic Performance

- a monologue performance

- a short film
- a short original script
- a puppet show
- a few renderings of costume or set designs
- a few pages of dramatic criticism
- a few pages of a promptbook for a stage manager
