Auditions will take place the second week of classes. Students will receive their parts via email a day or two after their audition. We will go over how to audition during the first day of class. (More information on the audition and casting process can be found on our parent information page)
Audition Monologues: Please choose one of the following monologues below for auditions or you may choose something out of the script (note: if you are choosing something out of the script please make sure it is more than one line) Whatever you choose, it should be memorized for the actual audition. Also if you would like a vocal solo be prepared to sing a few lines from any song (acapella) if you do not know what to sing you can choose a simple song like Twinkle , Twinkle Little Star. Roles are assigned based on each student’s audition! Memorization, characterization, facial expression, vocal expression, projection, and body control are all factors in casting! Every student will be assigned a role! Every part is important and our shows are very much ensemble productions! Auditions will take place the second week of classes. Please choose a monologue below for auditions. Students will receive their parts via email a day or two after their audition. We will go over how to audition during the first day of class.
Aladdin Monologues Fall 2017
Genie: Oy! Ten thousand years in a tin can will give you such a crick in the neck! Hey, do I have lamp breath? Never mind! Okay, that’s better! Now then, “Your wish is my command, yadda, yadda, you know the drill, so shoot… C’mon, kid, what’s it gonna be? Cash, camels, Casbahs? You must want something… Hey! What’d you say your name was?
Aladdin: But I do like Jasmine. I mean, “The Princess!” Ugh! Then again, what does it matter? I’m never gonna see her again. Me, the “street rat”! Besides, she deserves a prince. Or at least someone better than me. Oh why did I ever meet her? Boy, I’m glad I met her. … Look at all this junk! (A small lamp catches ALADDIN’s eye. He picks it up.) I bet no one’s been in here for years. Something’s written on this thing. Let’s see here. (ALADDIN rubs the lamp.)
Jasmine: Believe me, you’re not trapped. You’re free to go anywhere you want. Do anything you want. I’m sure that’s not the way it is in the palace. (sarcastic) Always perfectly wonderful. Never a dull moment. And all of those servants. And the servants of servants. Someone always watching you. Telling you where to go and who to see. Well, anyway, that’s how I imagine it would be.
Sultan/Sultaness: (To Jasmine) Now, Jasmine, which of these worthy princes will you keep and which will you vote off of the island? Jasmine, the law is the law. It’s been the law for a thousand years. No matter if you think it is unfair, you don’t have the choice of whom you marry. You’re a princess! Jasmine, now don’t be so dramatic about it. Now come inside the palace!
Jafar: (Speaking to Iago) You think I am PLEASED? “Pleased” to be playing nursemaid to a spoiled princess? While day in and day out that blithering idiot remains Sultan! I am working on an old document. With a NICE new paragraph I just added. Listen to this: “Should an unmarried Royal Princess, who is sole heir to the throne, fail to choose a husband within the time allotted for such selection, the Sultan’s highest ranking official –that would be me – will immediately become betrothed to the princess and will himself inherit all the rights. Privileges and powers of the Sultan! (Evil Laugh)
Iago: The Street Rat is now Prince Ali! Uh, You could say “Thanks Iago” “That was brilliant, Iago” Aw, shucks, Boss, just doin’ my job. Hey, I bet he gets his power from the guy with the earring. Ten to one, he’s behind that carpet trick. Bet he’s better than a wizard or a sorcerer. Hint: Three Wishes! Bingo, Boss, he’s a GENIE! And there is a lamp. Get it, and YOU will have all the power!
Storyteller/Peddler/Ensemble: Welcome to Agrabah, City of Enchantment! Where every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail! The big day has finally arrived and you’re all just in time to join the festivities.
