Auditionees are requested to prepare at one-minute comedic monologue.

Those without a prepared monologue will be asked to read from the script.

Further readings will be conducted at the callback audition.


As an incentive to sign up for the audition with Auditions Manager, the first hour of each open call will be given over exclusively to those who pre-register through this service.

Pre-registration is recommended, but not required.

Once pre-registration through this website is closed, auditionees may show up at either open call and complete their registration in person.
