What to Prepare

The most important thing to prepare for your audition is your audition material. We recommend that you select material that you are familiar with and can perform well. We also recommend that you dress in the professional attire that may impress the directors for the role or roles you’re particularly interested in.

Students must prepare two (2) contrasting monologues, such as a comedic and a dramatic monologue, and each may be classical or contemporary at the student's discretion. 

For those who wish to be considered for a musical prodcution and choose to sing (in addition to your two contrasting monoluges), length of song cut may be one (1) minute. If you choose to sing as part of your audition, please sing FIRST. 

Audition material may be from one or more shows in the UC Irvine Drama season, but you may also use material from other sources.
