Summary "As an actor at any level - from school exam to professional casting - you are likely to be called upon to perform one or more audition pieces - often a 'classical' piece is specified. A great deal will depend on your coming up with something fresh that is suited both to your particular performing skills and to the period of the play you are auditioning for. Which is where this volume of The Good Audition Guides comes in.".
"Drawing on her enormous experience as a theatre director and in drama training - she has sat on the selection board of several leading drama schools - Marina Caldarone has chosen for this volume fifty monologues for female actors selected from classical plays throughout the ages and ranging across all of Western theatre. Each monologue is prefaced with a neat summary of the vital information you need to place the piece in context and to perform it to maximum effect and in your own unique way. The volume also carries a user-friendly introduction on the whole process of auditioning."--BOOK JACKET.
