Audition Preparation

  • Two contrasting pieces, no more that two minutes each.
  • Contrasting pieces should show a range in your ability to create character. They can be from different periods (classical/contemporary), different genres (dramatic, comic), or you may opt to perform a song for your second piece.
  • If you elect to sing bring accompaniment on a CD. A CD player will be provided.
  • Bring a resume listing your acting and related theatre experience.
  • Make sure your pieces are fully memorized.
  • Work on creating honest, believable characters with a clear sense of why and to whom they are speaking (or singing).
  • Questions? Contact Professor David Resier, 609-626-6026,
