Here are the full-length audition monologues from the workshop. Every actor should have a set of prepared monologues, to be ready for auditions at any time. Each of you could learn the full-length version of the monologue you chose at the workshop and perform it for acting auditions and school assessments.
Twelve of the short monologues came from audition speech booklets issued by the big three acting schools: WAAPA, National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA – in Sydney), Victorian College of the Arts (VCA – in Melbourne).
Four of the monologues (Chris, Jessica, Linh, Sarah) came from films. I’ve put the full monologues at the end of this post.
