You should have about four monologues if you really want to develop your acting skills. Have four that you routinely practice, have memorized and scanned. These are unprepared monologues that you could deliver at any time. There should be two comedic and two dramatic pieces. Each pair should have a current and a classical piece. A fantastic technique to analyze and develop your talent is through classes and acting studies. However, putting in an audition for a performance is also a great way to advance. You have the opportunity to perform in an audition setting that will help you identify your strongest acting areas. You’ll be able to see what needs further work. The purpose of auditions is to gain experience as well as to make your name and face known. The standard format for an audition is to perform a monologue, a scene, or both. You’ll become more adept at making snap judgments in the heat of the moment during auditions. You won’t have much time to scan your lines, but understanding how to be efficient when you do have limited time can help you advance. Attend as many auditions as possible. You can look up local auditions for theater or movies and sign up. Alternatively, you may ask your teachers where the finest audition venues are. If your audition goes well and you get cast, you will know that you are on the right route to developing your talent. Consider your audition to be opening night when performing it. You should exert every effort possible to thoroughly inhabit the role and make wise decisions. If you have trouble making decisions, auditioning will help you get better at it.
