Actors are asked to prepare a monologue from the list provided below.
16-32 Bar of a Musical Theatre Ballad (Rodgers and Hammerstein preferred)
For your The Sound of Music audition, please prepare one of the provided monologues below!
Choosing the right monologue is an important part of your audition preparation. A
polished monologue gives you a chance to show off your acting skills and demonstrate your
connection to the production. Here are some suggestions on how to get started!
1) Familiarize yourself with the show! Read the script, listen to the music, watch samples of
performances on YouTube, and thoroughly read all of the audition information, including
the character descriptions that have been provided.
2) Ask yourself: Which role(s) do I see myself in? Which role(s) do I think the directors will
See me in? Consider all of the possibilities!
3) Choose a monologue that captures the essence of the characters that you would like to
be considered for, but read through all of the options. Be open to the discovery that this
exercise may lead you to!
4) Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. Perform your monologue in front of your loved ones and
ask for feedback to help you improve your audition and increase your comfort.
5) Memorization is a plus, but is not required.
Have fun! We are excited to see your performance!
