Welcome new Broadway Bulldogs!

We are so happy to have you taking part in a future production! No previous experience is necessary. We will all be learning together and strive to make this a fantastic experience for everyone. Below we share audition tips and options for monologues. (A monologue is a speech given by one actor. HERE is an example.) We have photos of productions online so you can see what students have created previously. If you have any questions you can email the director at any time.


We make the audition process a fun experience. We will introduce ourselves, talk about the show, perform monologue, sing a song, and perhaps play a game. We have a monologue practice session (not required) the week before auditions where you can work on your performance and even pick out a monologue, if you do not have one already. Below are some tips for a successful audition.

  • Selecting Your Monologue:
    • Always keep your monologue under the time limit.
      • Under 90 seconds for Broadway Bulldogs.
    • Make certain it is school appropriate.
    • Avoid using a character from the show you are auditioning for.
  • Creating An Engaging Monologue:
    • Memorize the monologue completely so you can be confident.
    • Make certain you can be heard, are expressive and move around.
    • Determine what your character wants and find new ways to get it.
    • Find a spot out in the audience/director area that you are speaking to.
  • Performance Tips:
    • You should expect a chair and nothing else.
    • Before starting, introduce yourself and the monologue you will do.
    • Let the director see you change into that character.
    • Do not use props in your audition.
    • Do not worry if you forget a line. Keep going - no one will know but you.
      • If you get stuck, pause (in character) and start again.
    • Do not worry if director stops you or asks you to try something.
      • That only means they have confidence in you to try it.
    • If asked to sing - do not be timid. Put your voice out there!
  • After Your Monologue:
    • At the end of your monologue, always say "thank you".
    • Return anything you used in your monologue.
    • Be a great audience member and support your fellow actors.
  • Relax, smile, be confident in yourself and have fun!
