Please prepare one dramatic and one comic one-minute monologue for Sunday’s general audition. Choose characters from plays you know and a character you feel drawn to and in which you might conceivably be cast. For A Midsummer Night’s Dream please also prepare 16 bars of music.

Bring two headshots or other representative photos of yourself and two résumés to the audition. At this stage, you don’t need a professional headshot but be sure the photo is representative of your current appearance. No social media event/party photos please.
