Mastering the Shakespeare Audition

Soto-Morettini, Donna



Mastering the Shakespeare Audition is a practical collection of approaches to analysing the structure of Shakespeare's monologue texts, understanding the prosody and metre, and building a solid preparation and rehearsal process.
Starting with how to choose a piece that plays to each actor's particular strength, the book provides a series of timed exercises and rehearsal techniques that will allow any actor to feel confident and truly prepared for performance. Offering progressive and clearly marked exercises detailing the time necessary both to read and complete the work, Mastering the Shakespeare Audition also features extended exercises for those with more time to spare, allowing a deeper understanding of the ideas and skills involved.
