  1. Maximum two pages (double-­‐spaced), in note form, contextualizing this monologue by identifying the geographical location of the monologue (introduce the world of the piece), the date/time/era in which it occurs (be as specific as possible), who the character is, to whom the character is speaking and why they are speaking to this person, and briefly explain what has occurred the moment before the character begins to speak to incite them to do so.

Choose the two pages you feel showcases your voice as a writer today, here and now. Do not submit old work created more than a year ago or as part of a high school program! This is not about judging final draft “quality” but rather identifying individual voice and ability to express that voice in a particular and unique way.

For Dramaturgs:

  1. Choose any contemporary play (written by a professional playwright) with which you are familiar and write the playwright a formal letter explaining what you, as a dramaturg, believe works well in their play and what might be further developed before rehearsals begin. Be as specific as possible and include THREE questions about the work that you would like to see explored more in the imaginary “next draft” or that you believe are not fully realized in the script. The questions might focus on the world of the play, on character development, on narrative/plot or on action (Maximum one page, double‐spaced, Times New Roman, 12 pt.).
  1. In one simple, clear sentence, delineate the IDEA of the play (do not tell the story or plot of the play: create a statement that encapsulates what the writer wants the reader/audience to carry away as a statement, an idea).

Please ensure  that  each  page is numbered and has your name on it as a Header (headers and numbers may be in 8 pt.).

Each monologue should be no longer than one and a half minutes.
  2. Your song is to be sung without any live or recorded accompaniment. Apply the same acting guidelines to the song as you would to your monologues—to a person in a place for a reason. The song should be under one minute in length.

Procedure

  4. Come at least half an hour before your scheduled time. You may warm-up quietly in ACE 209: no loud vocal exercises or conversation please. This room is reserved for those preparing, so please use the studio respectfully for that purpose.
  5. Clothing: do not dress ”for the part”; please wear close-­fitting clothes that you can move in comfortably (no jeans please); no jewelry; all loose hair must be tied back off the face; no hats; bare feet; minimal “street” make‐up if any at all.
  6. Props: generally, try to avoid them altogether; one prop may be used, if absolutely necessary. Do not use mime. We will supply a chair for your use.
  7. There will be a brief group warm-­up. You should then expect to perform one of your monologues (the one you feel most comfortable with) and some of the song within your scheduled block of time. There may also be a group session with improvisations.
  8. Do not be surprised if you are stopped during your piece or your song. If you are asked to do something entirely different with your piece, we may just be trying to discover your capacity for redirection.

Acting Conservatory Callbacks: Friday, April 12.

  1. A list of callback candidates will be posted to our callback webpage. You must memorize both roles of the provided neutral scene that you can find at the bottom of that page.
