National Youth Theatre Monologues: 75 Speeches for Auditions Reviews


The ultimate guide to auditions for young actors. Compiled of 75 excerpts from National Youth Theatre plays dating back to 1967, with the first play that the NYT commissioned themselves. Amongst this are instantly well known names, such as T S Elliot and Brian Friel, but it also samples a number of lesser-known but equally rich pieces. The real bonus of this particular library of suggested audition texts is the insight from NYT Associate Artist Michael Bryher. His unique perspective on how to tackle these pieces forensically unpicks each one, in turn unlocking advice that really does make the reader reach a greater understanding. This must-have guide is sure to bolster the confidence of those lining up to take part in auditions... stand outs as a carefully compiled, insightful and considered selection that offers a unique and often refreshing perspective on the broad selection of texts. --Broadway World
