The audition for the North Carolina Governor’s School in Theater has three parts: two monologues and one series of interview questions.

NOTE: For parts 1 and 2, it is not necessary to bring a copy of either selection. Performances should suit the nominee’s particular ability and demonstrate his/her range. (The judges will be interested in seeing more than a one-dimensional monologue.) No costumes or props are necessary. Auditions will be in a classroom – not on a stage.

  1. MONOLOGUE ONE: The nominee will perform a monologue, not to exceed one minute in length, which he/she chooses from a list of selections.

  2. MONOLOGUE TWO:  The nominee will perform a second monologue, again not to exceed one minute in length, from classical material (heightened text such as Shakespeare, Sophocles, Euripides, Goethe, etc.) of his/her own choosing.
  3. Finally, the nominee will briefly answer two to three interview questions posed by the judges.

Students will be emailed information about other details (location, time, date, preparations, etc.) several weeks prior to audition day.
