Foreword

Prepare your audition repertoire with the most innovative monologue series to date-Audition Arsenal!

Are you tired of buying monologue books only to discard half of the pieces because they are outside of your age range? Not anymore! The first four books in this breakthrough series are for:

Women in their 20s Men in their 20s
Women in their 30s Men in their 30s

That means 101 monologues per book, 2 minutes and under, that are all usable by you! And it gets even better.

The Audition Arsenal books are organized by type so you will have dynamic, memorable, contemporary monologues that demonstrate your ability to handle any role. Each type is defined by a specific personality trait, allowing you to showcase the qualities crucial to a particular character or role. In addition, choosing contrasting types is a great way to show your range in general auditions. The types are broken down by tone-comedic, dramatic, or seriocomic.

Searching is easy, accurate, and fun!
Here are the types you will find in this book:
Wacky, Quirky, Odd Awkward, Nervous, Uneasy
High-strung, Neurotic, Stressed-out Romantic, In love
Angry, Fed Up Melodramatic
Vulnerable, Hurt, Exposed Joyful, Enthusiastic, Excited
Persuasive, Inspirational Troubled, Pained

The Audition Arsenal series is a priceless resource for acting teachers and coaches, and the perfect tool to prepare you to land your next role-no matter what it calls for.

Monologues for your gender, in your age range, by type and tone-getting cast has never been this easy!
