Here are four pages of valuable advice on rehearsing and performing monologues and for auditioning for a role. Give out directly to students!
Example of a monologue performance tip:
Form a mental picture in your mind of yourself being relaxed and confident as you deliver your monologue. In particular, imagine that you have just finished your monologue and that you feel content and proud of your performance. Athletes use this technique before running marathons or making free throws; visualization affects your subconscious mind, allowing you to feel more confident and at ease on the day of the audition or show.
