3.) Select (one) page of text from the script or around 2-3 minutes and perform the page as written creating strong physical, and vocal character choices for each character that appears on the page.  This DOES NOT have to be memorized but should be prepared, thoughtful and rehearsed.  You should select a page you feel would best demonstrate your range as an actor.  For the purposes of this audition the gender expression of the characters(s) need not match your gender expression.  ie.
