Diary from one of the monologues currently in rehearsal for
"Gorgeous Girls" is now available. (CLICK HERE) Rehearsing a monologue is a VERY
intense experience. It is much more demanding than any interactive
performance - so much is focused on the one individual.
All the impulses
whether external or internal are the sole responsibility of the
one actor. This is tough stuff. This diary of the rehearsal of
a monologue about a 113 year old prostitute and madam ("Yesterdays
News") had been recorded as a teaching tool for Director
Richard Sarell. As many people have expressed interested in reading
the notes Richard has decided to publish them. They include not
only a log of the progress of the rehearsal but details of the
impros and techniques devised to resolve problems.
of "45 Minutes Thankyou Gypsy", a monologue
written & performed by CAROLINE LLOYD are being recorded
on video with the aim of making a 10 minute documentary about
the rehearsal. The monologues are part of "Gorgeous Girls"
which opens at Gasworks Arts Park, October 20-31, Wednesday -
Saturday 8pm, Sunday 6pm (FOR

At a recent audition Samantha Hird was told she had "nailed
it" but didn't get the part because they were looking for
a different type. Sammy has nearly completed all levels of The
Rehearsal Room Teenage Classes and the understanding she has
gained is now starting to pay dividends for her.
a week later - success!!! An email to The Rehearsal Room reads,
"I am so excited, I got the lead part I auditioned for today.
I love the script and I can't wait to film it. It will be a 3
day shoot." Sam is twelve and through her hard work is acquiring
a good level of skill. This 3 day shoot will give her more experience
and more confidence. "I think I am travelling well at the
moment," she says.
"I can't stop smiling," says Patrick Constantinou.
"I am having so much fun." Patrick has found The Rehearsal
Room a really exhilarating experience. "It has put the fun
back into acting for me," he said. After completing a three-year
degree course in performance Patrick felt restricted and burdened
by his responsibilities as an actor.
A SCENE IN A REHEARSAL ROOM WORKSHOP.
Rehearsal Room process has liberated him from those restrictions
and he is now, after only 5 weeks, freely indulging his impulses
to respond. Richard Sarell says, "Patrick's listening skills
are growing strongly. And his trust and self-confidence are rocketing."
Patrick has good reason to smile.

There are lots of opportunities to be seen by a Casting Director
around at the moment. And being seen is of some value when your
skills are functioning. But it is important to assess whether
you are actually getting an opportunity to be cast or whether
you are just spending a lot of money to be told that, "You
need to do more work." Rehearsal Room Audition Workshops
are not primarily about 'being seen'. They are an opportunity
to build audition skills so that when you do get a real chance
to audition you can do so competently.
are the icing on the cake. They give a shine to already functioning
acting skills. If you are interested in improving your audition
skills email The
Rehearsal Room now.
