Hey you’re all set to go! How would you like to proceed? Tumblr, email, phone…?

Cheers!

Anonymous said: Hi! I will be applying to colleges very soon hoping for a BFA program, I am actually apply to many similar school as you did. I was wondering where you found monologues for auditions and what were yours? Thank you so much for your time!

I worked with a few professors at CMU who helped me get a selection going. My one Professor gave me these guidelines that really helped me out actually:

- Find a monologue that you are passionate about and that is fun and you simply love to do

- Most colleges aren’t necessarily looking at talent but at how well you work and collaborate with them

-If the monologue is from a short play that’s cool, if you have to modify the monologue at all do it. At the end of the day it’ll be more important to change a piece slightly and really connect with the material then do a different piece all together. 

As for my monologues I believe I did: 

Jump/Cut by Neena Beber
Helena from Alls Well That Ends Well
Personality by Gina Wendkos and Ellen Ratnor
Emily from Our Town for Thornton Wilder

Cheers and keep me updated!

I’ve been sitting on this couch for hours thinking of your mouth -don’t pull away. Your mouth. Moving. And your hair. Trying to conjure the correct version of you so I could see this all with some sort of precision. But you keep blurring. Even now, your hands. They feel like I could just press a little harder and your bones would crush to dust beneath your skin. But I know they are the same hands as before. I know it. Okay, Christa? I know it, but I still fucking hate you right now.

SPECIAL PROMOTION SUPER CUSTOMIZED MONOLOGUE RECOMMENDATIONS!

Hello my fantastic followers! 

  I wanted to fill ya’ll in on a really exciting project that currently needs your help to be funded. 

I know I know. Another stupid Indiegogo campaign. 

Hopefully you can give me the next few minutes to talk to you about why this is an important artistic endeavor to fund. 

I love music of any and all kinds. So when my friend, the incredible, Francesca Blanchard started an indiegogo campaign to fund her first full length album I knew I had to donate. Francesca reminds me of a mix of Laura Marling, Joni Mitchell, and God. And she is about to EXPLODE on the music scene. Have a look at her website and music here! 

http://www.francescablanchard.com/

(I’ll also post some music after this) (Annd continue to post monologues, I haven’t forgotten that) 

HERE IS THE SUPER AWESOME PROMOTION I CAN OFFER YOU

I have some monologues that I have refrained from putting on the blog, simply because I consider them my favorite pieces and somehow I think if I put them out there they’ll lose magic. I also have a ton of other monologues I need to type up and queue. I get, on an average day, around 100 requests for monologue recommendations, 

So here’s my deal. If you research Francesca and find that you really dig her music and want to donate, than send me an inbox saying you donated and the name that you said you donated under. I’ll confirm that you donated with Francesca and we’ll set up a time when we can talk on the phone/ chat/ inbox whatever so you can explain to me exactly what you want in a monologue. And if you don’t know what you want I can get to know you and then help you figure out monologues perfect for your type, what you’re going out for, and that you love. I will not stop until we find something you love. 

I’ll forward you some of the applicable reserve monologues as well as the digital version of the play that one of your chosen monologues is from. 

All I ask in return, is that you donate to Francesca’s campaign. You can donate any amount but please, if you also want to be eligible for monologue help donate at least $10. 

Here is the indigogo link. Today I’ll post purely Francesca Blanchard music (because I’m annoying) and then tomorrow I promise to resume monologues.

As a price comparison, when I was searching for monologues to audition at colleges with people were charging upwards of $50. None of your money will go to me, it will go to something much more beautiful and worthy! 

All my love friends.
