Book Description

23 April 2009 Good Audition Guide
One of two volumes in NHB's successful series of "Good Audition Guides". For any actor a great deal depends on their coming up with something that is exactly suited both to the role they are auditioning for and to their particular performing skills. This is where "The Good Audition Guides" come in. Each book contains over 50 speeches drawn from across the whole of Shakespeare's canon, from some of the best loved works such as A Midsummer Night's Dream and Henry V to more intriguing less well-known speeches from plays like Love's Labour's Lost, King John and Titus Andronicus. Each monologue is prefaced with a neat summary of the information needed to place the piece in context and to perform it to maximum effect. Edited by Luke Dixon and drawing on his extensive experience as a director and teacher of Shakespeare the book also features a user friendly introduction on selecting the right speech, tackling Shakespeare's language and handling the audition process. A must have for actors at every level, whether putting together speeches for a school exam, drama-school entrance or a professional casting. A companion piece, Shakespeare Monologues for Young Men is to be published by NHB in November 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy 19 July 2013
By Conor
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book because I wanted a selection of Shakespeare monologues to use for auditions. This book does a great job of dividing the monologues into the comedies, tragedies and histories.
For any actor wanting a selection of monologues this is something you should have.
