How 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. 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 sing, length of song may be one (1) minute. Audition material may be from one or more shows in the UC Irvine Drama season, but you may also use material from other sources. 

If you are singing for BACK HOME and DO NOT have any audition materials,  the director has recommended and provided song options. Email Kyrsten Goodrich at for materials as needed. 

If you are specifically interested She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms, here is the SCRIPT for audition material as needed. 


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.
