Secret of How to Select and Deliver a Monologue | Examples

Monologues for auditions


Remember, a well-written, prepared and practiced monologue makes a casting director remember you. 


A monologue (from Greek μονόλογος from μόνος mónos, "alone, solitary" and λόγος lógos, "speech") is presented by a single Actor (character), most often to express their mental thoughts aloud, though sometimes also to directly address another character or the audience.

Characteristics of a Good audition monologue and its delivery


  • It should be of less than two minutes. Two minutes is more than enough to show your talent. In fact, remember, the auditors have already made their decision after 30 seconds, maybe even less.
  • The monologue should have a clear objective. You can't just stand there and talk. You have to imagine of a scene and have talk to someone you've imagined, and not to a lifeless camera or a casting director.
  • The monologue should have a distinct beginning, middle, and an end. 
  1. A beginning: A strong first sentence to capture attention.
  2. A middle: Lots of juicy content. 
  3. An end: A strong finish. When your monologue has a structure, the auditors are more likely to remember you.
  • It must Contain conflict. Drama cannot exist without conflict. Who wants to see a lifeless audition? Boring...

Choosing a Monologue

Actors often get confused choosing a monologue. But it's very simple: Pick one you love, which thrills you. And if it thrills you, it will definitely impress the casting directors!
Also, it's important to choose a few contrasting monologues. Have at least two monologues ready to go at all times:
A contemporary dramatic
A contemporary comedic

Caution!

While performing your monologue-

  • DO NOT CRY.
  • DO NOT LAUGH.
  • DO NOT SHOUT

Here are 2  good monologues, especially written and filmed by us for our students-Zeeshan and Yash Rajput. They got a break in theater and film!

  7. Kaushal, you are late to write to me. Hope your audition was good. Don't worry, if it's an acting academy, they will select you because their main objective is to make money while training you and they will not lose a fat fee from you. Later, to get a role in film or serial will be your problem. No school guarantee a student any break in films in spite of tall promises.
    Good Luck, friend

    1. 1. Firstly tell me whether the audition was for some film, serial or ad.?
      2. Please remember, as an actor you get paid to act and not that you have to pay to get a role.
      3. Anybody asking you to pay to get a role or on a pretext of "training" is a cheat. You will lose your Rs. 30,000
      4. NO. Training in any school is not a must to get a role. If you perform well in audition and are selected, it means you already have a talent

    1. 1. Before you come to Mumbai, fix up an accomodation for you for at least for 3 months. For what will be the cost of hiring a place, please visit this post: http://bestactoracademy.blogspot.in/2013/08/aspiring-actors-want-to-be-in-mumbai.html
      2. Get yourself trained by a professional coach or a school.
      3. For coaching from me, you can read the home page of this blog and a post on the page, where I have answered most of the questions in an interview.
      4. To be coached by me to become a successful actor, you have to register with my institute one month in advance by paying the full amount of the course.

    1. 1. You have approached wrong people
      2. To be an actor, you need money for a minimum requirement and to prepare yourself

  24. Hii Coach i hope u will go through my problems and doubt and help me to conquer them.
    My problem or say situation is that
    Presently i m of 18 and my desire is to become an actor.
    This sounds good but the problem is that i don't have money to pay to any directors or any institutions because i m financially weak, and i want u to suggest me those directors or production houses who u think appropriate for me as i live my life by following tiger shroff's life sfyle and his disciplines even i don't have money to go gym or to learn dance but i learn and do practice by watching different utube vedios and try to make me prepared by practicing this regularly. HOPE U WILL REPLY ☺
