    2. Read the play your monologue is from and know the character history
    3. Monoglues must be memorized and 1.5-2 minutes in length (max)
    4. Demonstrate specific character development and through-line of thought within the audition piece
    5. Demonstrate excellent use of the English language and diction
    6. Do your homework and your best to pronounce the Characters' names correctly
  3. Please carefully review the audition information and casting details created by both Directors as it contains important rehearsal date information, character analyses, professional practices, etc. Those materials can be found below under "Scripts and Casting Details"
