Monologue help, ideas, workshop
I did for my drama audition the speech about Buba from Forest Gump, or you could do Attonment?

Do you have a set timing for how long it should be?

Best of luck!

But you're only allowed to use monologues from published plays

The workshop is super fun, it’s starts with a warm up and a bit of exercise just to get you loose, you then play some games and sometimes discuss why they could be rehearsal techniques (wink murderer for example). You then build to devising some short pieces in different groups by doing some character and team building games. You might talk about your life experiences and use them to influence pieces. It can sometimes push you out of your comfort zone but be friendly and open and throw yourself into it.

In the interview all I got asked was what I do outside of school- don’t just talk about stage school if you go to one. She also asked me what I thought of the workshop that morning- mention the positives and what you will take away with you/ the effect it’s had on you

The summer course is a mish mash of everything. It’s like your workshop but more fun, more team building, with more great people, across two weeks. We did some fitness, some singing, some dancing, some practitioner work, a lot of games. It was the best two weeks of my life, and I would urge you to just be a good version of yourself on the day and be considerate of everyone you meet

Thanks for the explanation, it sounds relaxed on the day which is comforting.

I've heard at the end of the course you do a performance to a group of directors, it this true?

This is partially true- you devise a performance in your course (around 30 people) during the 2nd week of your course, but you perform to parents, other courses and course directors and assistants on the last day. The devising I did was completely left up to us as a group but was influenced by the games and techniques we had used over the time we were there

I can only speak from experience of my course, but the other people were the best part for me. Everyone I met was so grateful to be there and extremely hard working, but also fun and kind. It’s physically a tough two weeks, but the other people were what made it all worthwhile. Almost a year on, I’m still best friends with people across the country because of NYT
