HS Performance Intensive Auditions

Video Audition Submission Info

Auditions are required for High School Students interested in the Performance Intensive only.

Auditions should be self-taped with just your phone.  No fancy equipment necessary!

For your audition, please submit the following:

  • Up to two memorized monologues (no more than 60 seconds each).

If you choose to submit two monologues, please choose monologues of contrasting styles.  This could mean one comedic and one dramatic, or one Shakespearean and one contemporary. We are interested in seeing your range. You get to choose whichever two kinds of monologues you select.


  • In your video, please provide the following details:
    • Introduce yourself by stating your name, where you go to school, and what town you are from.

    • Please state the character(s) and play(s) for your monologue(s) when you are introducing yourself, then perform the monologue(s).

    • For good tips on self-taped auditions, please visit Please disregard any information that talks about equipment other than your cell phone. The most important consideration for you is that we can see you and we can hear you. 


To Submit Your Video

  • Upload it to a video platform such as YouTube or Vimeo.  If you don't want the video to be made public, upload to YouTube and set it to "unlisted."  You can also upload to a free cloud storage service such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or WeTransfer. 
  • Copy the link to the video and email it to Peter Duffy at


We will cast the play off of your audition and send you the script with your part by June 1st. 

Thank you for your participation and your audition!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
