Please note the following:

  1. Make sure you record yourself in a large space that allows you to move easily. Here are some tips. Each video should be no longer than 1 minute. You can send 2 different videos or put them all together in one file.
  2. Both the song and the monologue you choose must be in English. This is obligatory.
  3. You can choose any musical work, movie, series, song, etc. It has to be a topic that you like and feel comfortable with.
  4. If you need help finding the perfect monologue for you, you can review the following list that we prepared.

If you would like to send your audition without completing the Registration Form, we will still need to know you a little more in order to evaluate you. Therefore, in addition to your video, we ask that you also indicate your name, age, level of English proficiency, and amount of acting experience in the message you send us.
