Acting for Film:
Prepare, memorize, and present two one-minute contrasting monologues from either a published play or screenplay.

Musical Theatre:
Prospective Musical Theatre School applicants for the 4-Week Program are expected to prepare a 1-minute monologue from a published American play or film along with two brief contrasting musical theatre songs. Applicants applying to the Musical Theatre School's 1- and 2-year programs must prepare a 2 minute-monologue alongside the aforementioned two songs. Applicants who choose to audition in person must provide their own accompaniment either in the form of a CD or digital music player for their choice of music. In selecting material for the audition, it is crucial to choose pieces that are age and type appropriate and to familiarize oneself with the entirety of the play, screenplay, or libretto before the audition. Applications should be completed online or turned in prior to scheduling an audition. Applicants have the option to schedule an appointment for a particular time at our New York or Los Angeles campus. After completing the audition, an Admissions Representative will contact you with an admissions decision.
