What do I need to prepare for camp?
We are asking every student to memorize one monologue and one song before the beginning of camp.

What’s a monologue?
A monologue is a speech given by one person. We recommend that it be about one minute in length.

Where can I find a monologue?
You can find monologues in plays, books, movies, or even your favorite TV show. Don’t be afraid to use your imagination. We are looking for you to show us who you are and feel free to use the camp theme for inspiration. When you find a monologue that you like, memorize it and know who wrote the monologue and where it came from. Keep in mind that you don’t have to buy a monologue book. You can download many of these offline for free or make a copy of the monologue that you find in a book. If you have a movie or TV monologue you love, write it down! Here are some suggestions to get you started:

How long should my song be?
We suggest a solo song about 2 minutes in length. The song does not have to be from a musical. It can be a pop song, a classical piece, or any style that you feel comfortable singing. Get creative and don’t forget our imagination theme. What do you love to sing? What song do you love to sing in the shower or in the car? Is it on the radio or maybe from your favorite musical?

Do I need sheet music and where can I find it?
You will need to provide sheet music for the song you choose to prepare. Here are some books that may help you find a song:

  • The Best Broadway Songs Ever (The Best Ever Series)
  • The Singer’s Musical Theatre Anthology
  • Contemporary Women of Pop and Rock
  • Music Notes
  • Online Sheet Music
