You will have two minutes to present a song and monologue
Please prepare a selection from one of the following shows:
Big Fish, My Favorite Year, 9 to 5, Sister Act, Catch Me if You Can, Curtains,

Rough Magic is a live-action comic book, which is to say that it sometimes deals with serious subject matter, but it retains a spring in its step. Please select monologue material that honors that spring. And please…no Neil LaBute.
The roles of Chet, Caliban, Ariel, and Sasia require a certain athletic physicality. One of the many criteria involved in casting these roles will be perceived appearance of athleticism. Performers interested in these roles should be prepared for costumes that reveal/accentuate body type, similar to dance costuming.
