How to Audition

  1. Choose a 1 minute monologue (you can read it, it doesn’t have to memorized)
  2. Record yourself performing the monologue.
  3. Submit your audition (or a link to your audition) to by April 10th!

Tips for Submitting Video

  • Keep it simple. We’re looking for performance, not videography
  • You can email as an attachment
  • You can upload to YouTube, make the video private and send the link
  • You can upload to a Google Drive Folder and share the link

We really want to see everyone’s audition, so if you have any issues, please send a message to

“I believe that one of the most sound ideas in dramatic writing is that in order to create something universal, you must pay very great attention to the specific.”
