Choosing your audition piece

Find out everything you need to know about our audition requirements here.

We know it can be hard to pick a monologue to perform at your audition - that's why we've compiled this handy list of resources for you. Below you'll find a selection of contemporary pieces. Alternatively, here's a list of classical speeches. That's not to say that this is a definitive list - you are completely free to choose your own piece.

Please remember your audition speech should last no longer than 2-3 minutes.
