TCTC_new logoClick here to visit the official audition page to sign-up to audition

TCT is a professional theatre company and here is when YOU can take the stage. This class combines instruction with the opportunity to perform in a fully-staged musical with props, costumes and sets. Our curriculum combines instruction with “doing,” to best help students internalize and master the theater skills taught. To complement and reinforce the learning process, students will also spend time rehearsing for their production that culminates in public performances.

Audition Monologues

Female Option 1 You don’t get to be a nobody. Come Monday, You’re an ex-somebody. Not even the losers are gonna talk to you now. You can transfer to Washington and you can transfer to Jefferson, but no one at Westerberg is gonna let you play their reindeer games. I’m like oxygen: I’m everywhere. Really, Veronica? Making out with psycho trench coat kid? I will end you for this. Everyone in school is gonna know that “good little Veronica Sawyer” is nothing but a floozy tart. (VERONICA pukes on HEATHER CHANDLER’s shoes) AAAAAAAAAAHHH! I raised you up from nothing! And this is my thanks? I get paid in puke????? I know who I’m eating lunch with on Monday. Do you?

Female Option 2 Our children are dying! I hate to pull out my counterculture bonafides, here, but what this school needs is a good old fashion rap session. Now I suggest that we gather everyone into the cafeteria and just talk and feel together! (Pause) Go ahead, laugh at the hippy, but I am telling you we all misjudged Heather Chandler. This is the loveliest suicide that I’ve ever read.

Male Option 1 What is that I smell in the air? Tolerance? Inclusion? Love? You know, how often can you say it’s a good day to live Westerberg, Ohio? You’re welcome, town. Your love keeps me humble. So, who’s next to get rid of…Heather Duke? She started that rumor about you. I’ve already taken the liberty of underlining meaningful passages in her copy of Moby Dick, if you know what I mean. (beat) Look, any war has casualties. It doesn’t mean it’s not worth fighting! But what? You’d rather go to jail and give a free pass to the thugs who hurt people, evil people who make this world so unbearable you can’t stand to go on living?

Male Option 2 How was work?? It was miserable. Some group of withered old women is trying to stop me from blowing up this fleabag hotel all because Glenn Miller and his band once took a picture there. Just like Kansas. Do you remember Kansas? Save the Memorial Oak Society. Showed those tree huggers 30 bricks of C4 explosives strapped to the trunk! Arraigned but acquitted. Damn, I love Kansas.
