THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite song on YouTube? What would you do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would you do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed by SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to limit protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

1 Don't do monologues from movies.
If you do a monologue from a movie, people will automatically think 'not like in the movie'. That will make them think negative things, and because you're not like the actor/actress in the movie, they'll most likely think less of your ability.

2 Don't do very well known monologues.
Pieces like the 'To be or not to be' speech from Hamlet, or something like that, the directors have seen those all the time. They get tired of seeing that. It's not unique anymore, and they'll lose interest fast. Do ones that haven't been performed enough, or better yet, one you think they've never seen before. It won't bore them to death and they'll like you've taken the time to find something unusual.

3 Do pieces that fit you.
Make sure that your monologue is relatable. Ask people what their first impression of you is. If you get things like 'ditzy popular cheerleader' (sorry, just an example) then a piece about someone like that would be good for you. It looks better than if you do a piece about an old man (unless you're that good an actor) but keep to what others see you as. In theatre, appearances DO matter.

I wasn't going to make it. I was woosy and I wasn't even on stage yet it was 4 hours away from the performance.I felt my hands moist with sweat and my breath became uneven. Not to mention I grew more fidgety by the minute. "Oh why did I do this" I thought. I was way too shy to be in front of the class now I was going to be in front of the whole school and our parents. I should have known better the only reason I was doing this was because my mom said it was acting or oboe. She just wanted me out of the house to be with her boyfriend Tim. I should of chose Oboe but against my better judgement I chose acting. Why? Really I don't know why at the moment and maybe I never did. I wanted to quit but I had the lead and I didn't want to disapoint Mr. Grant.My light brown hair started to stick to my sweaty brow and I knew there was no way out of this. I couldn't drop out that's just what Emma wanted me to do and I couldn't let my crush Darrel down he was counting on me and maybe he was the reason I was so scared because in the play we have to kiss and I knew this would be both of our first kisses so I was fearful I'd screw it up. Emma had a crush on him too who could blame her he was...

Dear Ms. or Mr. Donna,

To you, acting is a solo activity. You expect everyone to praise you and be at your every beck and call, regardless of your actual skill or talent in the area of performance. So let me tell you one thing right now: You are not unique.

Are you surprised that I would dare to call you something as offensive as "ordinary"? But it's true, and I have proof. I know this is true, because we have met before. I met you first in middle school, as the girl who was always used to getting the lead and then was suddenly cast as the understudy. She contemplated quitting, when she decided instead that she would get much more sympathy playing the martyr, and hanging around and sulking during rehearsals, taking every chance she got to remind the actress who "stole" her role that the only reason she had it is because she sucked up to the director.

I met you again in my first few years of high school as the senior who auditioned for Javert in Les Miserables and when he was cast as Enjolras, a perfectly interesting and respectable character, subsequently threw down his script and quit, leaving the director to cast someone else....
