ActingSmarts on Local and Regional Theatres
by Jack Shaw
If you ever find yourself in an audition situation where a monologue is called for and you show up without one, don’t despair. While obviously it is better to be prepared–you could have just learned of the audition, offer to read a monologue or piece from the play itself. If you are a good cold-reader this can be acceptable to some directors, but understand the risk of not coming prepared.
