Serious Shakepseare monologues for Male 25 -30
Does anyone have a recommendation for a Shakespeare Monologue for a Male 25-30

Needs to be 1 minute in length and to be serious in nature as I am contrasting it with a contemporary comedic piece.

My goto has always been Polonius's farewell speech to Laeters (to thine own self be true) but I'd like to see what else is out there.

This is my first equity audition !

Can anyone recommend a good comedic monologue dealing with either: religion, spirituality, the existence of human kind, or the cosmos?

ever since i first saw the Trevor Nunn movie version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, i immediately fell in love with the extraordinary soundtrack.  unfortunately, it seems like it's been out of print for pretty much ever.  i've been looking on amazon and ebay for over a year now without luck, so i thought i'd turn to the rest of the internet for help. 

if anyone out there has a copy of the Twelfth Night soundtrack and is willing to burn me a copy, i'd be more than happy to send postage to cover the shipping costs.  you can contact me here. 

thanks!  keeping my fingers crossed!

EDITi got it!  thanks, The Internet!

Delta Xi cast presents Cat on a Hot Tin Roof!
Event: The Delta Xi Cast of Alpha Psi Omega presents Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Time/Date: Thursday, September 13, Friday, September 14, and Saturday, September 15, at 8:00 pm.
Location: RPI Playhouse, RPI Campus, 15th Street, Troy
Telephone: (518) 276-6503

Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Amanda Brinke
Produced by Greg Zabielski

It is the story of a Southern family in crisis, focusing on the turbulent relationship of a wife and husband, Maggie "The Cat" and Brick Pollitt, and their interaction with Brick's family over the course of one evening gathering at the family estate in Mississippi, ostensibly to celebrate the birthday of patriarch and tycoon "Big Daddy" Pollitt. Maggie, through wit and beauty, has escaped a childhood of desperate poverty to marry into the wealthy Pollitt family, but finds herself suffering in an unfulfilling marriage. Brick, an ageing football hero, has neglected his wife and further infuriates her by ignoring his brother's attempts to gain control of the family fortune. Brick's indifference and his near-continuous drinking, date back to the recent suicide of his friend Skipper. Big Daddy is unaware that he has cancer and will not live to see another birthday; his doctors and his family have conspired to keep this information from him and his wife. His relatives are in attendance and attempt to present themselves in the best possible light, hoping to receive the definitive share of Big Daddy's enormous wealth.

Alpha Psi Omega is the National Honorary Dramatic Fraternity, an honor society for those who have demonstrated a high standard of work in dramatics. There are over 550 chapters (“casts”) at colleges around the country. The Delta Xi cast was formed at RPI in 1935 and remains active with the RPI Players.

I'm an APO member who is now teaching Theater in high school. I'd like to give me students a theatre folklore/tradtions assignment where they research the concept and do an oral report. The things I've thought of are:

Why do we say break a leg?
Why do we call it "the scottish play"?
Why are peacock feathers bad luck onstage?
Who was Saint Genesius?
Who was Saint Titus?
The tradition of the gypsy robe on broadway.

Can anyone help me with some more ideas?

It's the Wednesday Question from PNTA
PNTA started a blog a few weeks ago. So far it's been an interesting ride.

First off, thank you to those that commented! Dana Nye ran across the blog and called me this morning to comment on how great it was to be "involved" and to read all the insightful comments!

We've had such a great response from everyone here at the shop that Chrystian (Web Guru) and I want to continue this! Each Wednesday we will be posting questions, discussions, feedback opportunities for you to educate us! (The other posts, our regular Monday and Friday posts, will be our opportunity to talk about one of our most favorite places on earth -- PNTA!)

Thanks for joining us!

PNTA wants to know about Actor's choice of Make-up
PNTA started a blog a few weeks ago. So far it's been an interesting ride.

We have quite a collection of people that were reading, but not much that were commenting.

And comments/activity are good for traffic stuff.

We're looking at doing something different in today's post -- PNTA wants to be educated.

Good evening, everyone!

I am a newcomer to this group & looking forward to getting the chance to meet some of you and hear more about your APO groups!

Right now I am taking part in the show "Hamlet" at one of our community theatres (I'm playing Ophelia :) ). I've been keeping an acting journal and would love to hear some of your opinions on this character & show. If you're currently in a show and keeping an acting journal, I would *love* to read what sort of things you've been writing!

Please, feel free to stop by my journal and say hello! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Hey there!
Hey there brothers!

I'm Zach, new VP of the Tau Eta Cast at Rider University in NJ.

I'm designing the website for our cast and a thought just came upon me. When we initiate new active members, we require them to know at least 2 other casts' names and schools. So I figure, why not have some options linked to our brand new site?

I was wondering if any of your casts have websites that you'd like linked from ours.

Ours should be up within a week or two, so I'll be able to give you the URL as soon as it's live.

Please let me know, either commenting here, or emailing us at alphapsi@rider.edu!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Just an introduction of sorts *_~
Hi. I'm new to this community and just thought that I should pop on in and introduce myself ^_^.

I recently became part of the Alpha Beta Pi cast. Last Fall, in fact. I'm actively working with the cast on a fundraising event that we're putting on. Whereas there's not a lot of "theatrical" elements to the event, it's something that requires a lot of work on all of our parts. We're actually putting on an "American Idol" contest, which is open to the students at our University. It's going to be a great way to raise money for future Alpha Psi Omega events and activities, as there's a small application fee, and then, of course, admission fees (which is also not very expensive. Trying to keep in mind that our prospective audience will primarily consist of college students. The event will be opened to general public as well, and that admission fee will be slightly more).

Anyway, it's something that has me really excited. I've only really been in two theatrical presentations. "Pizza Man" and "Trafford Tanzi", but that will be changing now, seeing as how I enjoy it as much as I do, and I've been told I'm good at it ^_^. Well... I guess that's all for my rather lengthy introduction *_~.

'ART' chosen to perform at TANYS Festival
I am proud to announce that the Delta Xi Cast of Alpha Psi Omega's production of 'ART' has been selected to perform at the Theater Association of New York State's Theater Festival 2006. Over twenty shows were recommended for Festival but only eight were selected to perform over the course of a three-day weekend filled with lectures, workshjops, performance, and a banquet where Merit Awards will be given.

This year's Festival will be held at the Charles R. Wood Theater in Glens Falls, NY. The company will be performing on Friday, November 17 during the Performance Session I which starts at 7:00PM. ('ART" is up second. There is a one-act scheduled before 'ART'.)

More information on how you can support AYW or see the show in person will be forthcoming. If you want more info on TANYS or the festival, please go to www.tanys.org.

Congratulations to the cast, crew and entire membership of AYW for this terrific honor!
