DART AUDITIONS 2013 INFORMATION
AUDITIONS are required for:
BAND AUDITION sheets & info (for Twelfth Night) will be posted soon!!!
Please arrive early so you can complete your audition form and warm up. Your acting instructors and the directors of next year's main stage shows will be present. Possibly, assistant directors will also attend. We hope to keep the atmosphere as relaxed and informal as possible while sticking to the schedule-- please be aware that we are rooting for you -- we are on your side!
1. A Shakespeare monologue or soliloquy or a sonnet --of about one and a half (1 ½) minutes in length. If your character is addressing another character or the audience you may address the auditioners directly and make eye contact.
2. A physical, non-verbal version of that monologue. It should reflect the major argument or idea of the piece as you interpret it. It should not be you simply retelling the story in mime. Guttural sound and breath-emotion are very welcome, but try to avoid actual words in this performance—unless you feel one key line is absolutely essential! Try to increase the scale of the monologue as you express it through the body. Convey the spirit of the monologue and the story/character transitions honestly, as far as possible without mime or indication. Again, we invite you to make eye contact with the auditioners if you want to during this performance (no obligation!), but try to avoid "mugging"--i.e. using excessive facial indication. The real objective is to find the honesty and the action impulses of the character. Be truthful and all else will follow. You may use music to accompany the work, but it is not required.
3. [optional] – sing one verse or one chorus of a song a cappella. If you wish to do it accompanied, please bring your own instrument or recorded music.
Please be sure to fill out your special skills on the audition form – we are particularly looking for what musical instruments you play, your singing and your extended movement skills, including stage combat.
You have 5 MINUTES in total for your audition, so select short audition pieces that display your best qualities, skills and range.
