A bit of news

I know that this isn't technically Wednesday. In fact, it isn't even remotely Wednesday.

But I did something late yesterday that I thought needs a post. Especially since it involves one of my goals for 2012.

I booked an audition.

On Sunday I am going to try out for a leading role for a local theatre production. It's not a massive production, but I have to start somewhere. And starting as soon as I have a chance is a good way to go. Because I know I have a lot to learn and that I need to gain experience.

But yeah... I'm quite excited about this. Now I just need to find a monologue or poem that I can read for them. Any suggestions?

Well done, so happy for you! Something from Shakespeare?

I hope you'll get the part.

Go for it - and good luck. Ref prose or poem - check out W H Auden

Hey Misha.
My son is involved in theatre, He's done Fiddler on the roof and Annie at the Arts cape. Honk at the Milnerton Playhouse and Rumours somewhere near Muizenberg? Off to London some time soon.
Musical or drama? (Not sure about the correct word).

Here's my * WOOT!* for you. How much fun this is going to be. What kind of role will you be auditioning for? I'd choose what to read based on that. Good luck.

Thanks for commenting on the Sat. launch on fb. Hope to see you there.

Oh brilliant!!! Go YOU! No idea on the poem but gosh I think something that you really love would be good. Enjoy! x

Joyce Lansky said...

Good luck with it. Take a popular production and read something from that. For example, Cats or Phantom of the Opera.

I have no suggestion, but do hope you land a part.

Hope it went well! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Mary Aalgaard, Play off the Page said...

Congratulations on taking charge and stretching yourself. I don't have a great suggestion for a monologue. I am a playwright, and I think I need to make a book of monologues. Some of the other playwrights have them out there. What did you come up with? What play are you doing? Is it a professional compnay?
Thanks for connecting with me!

That IS exciting! I've always wanted to be in a play, but I've always been too chicken to try out. Good for you for doing it!

Congratulations, Misha, and thanks for stopping by. Having performed in the theater and film for the better part of my life, my suggestion is to find out what the director has asked for in the audition. Check the theater for the guidelines. Try to memorize two separate monologues; one for comedy and one for drama but, each, no longer than a minute. You can Google online for female monologues and should be able to find something that will get you started. Then you can go down to any bookstore and find some monologue books suited to your age. Good luck, take a deep breath, and relax. Remember, Shirley Temple was only four years old.

Andrew Leon said...

Oh, well, good...
Um, no...
Break a leg!

What are the parameters of the monologue?
