- Applicants must create a 2-3 minute original devised performance. Please refer to the 'Devised Performance Criteria' section (pages 2-3) of the Monologue Selection Booklet for further details.
- Prepare two memorised contrasting monologues: one classical and one contemporary, from the lists provided. Each piece must be approximately 2-3 minutes in length.
The classical monologue must be in verse and be from the Shakespeare monologue list provided. The contemporary monologue must be from the contemporary monologue list provided.
- Applicants must prepare 16 bars of any song to be sung a cappella (without accompaniment). If an applicant is asked to sing, it is an opportunity for our faculty to find out information about an applicant’s vocal production. Not all applicants will be asked to sing. If you are asked to sing, it is to experience another form of your interpretation of text and less about if you sing well or not.
THEATRE AUDITION PREPARATION WORKSHOPS
Applicants are welcome to our three workshops to help prepare for tertiary drama school auditions. The workshops will help you select and realise both Shakespeare and contemporary monologues as well as the VCA-specific area of devised performance.
