The end of the year is fast approaching and that means one thing… our Year 6 production is nearing! The name of our production this year is ‘Wow! What a Year’ and will be all about the very unusual year we have all had.
On Monday 24th May, we will be holding auditions for speaking parts in our production. In preparation for the auditions, we would like you to write and learn your own monologue about one of the following:
- Your personal experience of lockdown – you could discuss how the pandemic has affected you or your family, a difficult time you have faced or some challenging emotions that you have felt.
- Your hopes and wishes at this point – you could discuss who or what you have missed and what you are most looking forward to once things are back to normal.
You should aim for your monologue to last around 30 seconds. You could ask someone at home to time you!
Your audition will be your opportunity to express yourself and demonstrate your ability to project your voice, using tone and expression. Spoken language is also part of our curriculum, so even if you do not want a big speaking part, you will still need to perform your monologue.
Monday 17th May – written monologue due
On Monday 17th May, you need to bring in your written monologue so that your teacher can see how you are getting on.
You will then have another week to learn your monologue off by heart, in time for the auditions on Monday 24th May.
