The Enraged Accompanist's Guide to the Perfect Audition (Paperback): Andrew Gerle The Enraged Accompanist's Guide to the Perfect Audition (Paperback)

R321 R276 Discovery Miles 2 760 Save R45 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"I am your accompanist. You do not know me. I am the guy who sits behind the upright in the unflattering fluorescent light of the dance studio, a bottle of water on the floor, a half-eaten Power Bar on the bench, and your audition in my hands." Award-winning New York theatre composer and pianist Andrew Gerle pulls no punches in this irreverent, fly-on-the-wall guide to everything you've never been taught about auditioning for musical theatre. From the unique perspective of the pianist's bench, he demystifies the audition process, from how to put together your book and speak to an accompanist to the healthiest and savviest ways to approach the audition marketplace and your career. By better understanding the dynamics of professional auditions, you will learn to present yourself in the strongest, most castable way while remaining true to your own special voice - the one that, in the end, will get you the job.

Richard Hewett
R2,174 R1,600 Discovery Miles 16 000 Save R574 (26%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This title is an historical overview and a then-and-now comparison of performing for British television drama. By examining changing acting styles from distinct eras of television production - studio realism and location realism - it makes a unique contribution to both television and performance studies, unpacking the various determinants that have combined to influence how performers work in the medium. Comparing the original versions of The Quatermass Experiment (BBC, 1953), Doctor Who (BBC, 1963-89) and Survivors (BBC, 1975-77) with their respective modern-day re-makes, the book unpacks the developments that have resulted from the shift from multi-camera studio to single camera location production. Textual analysis is combined with extensive archive research into production process and reception, alongside interviews with numerous actors and production personnel from more than sixty years of television production. -- .

She Speaks - Monologues for Women (Paperback, Revised Ed.): Judith Thompson She Speaks - Monologues for Women (Paperback, Revised Ed.)
Judith Thompson
R523 R379 Discovery Miles 3 790 Save R144 (28%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A collection of contemporary Canadian monologues for women, intended for auditions, study or general interest and addressing themes of Adolescence, Body, Childhood Memories, Identity, Mothers, and Passion.

"A monologue must give voice to those who have been silenced. The speaker must urgently need to speak, to proclaim, to persuade, to incite, to inspire, to agitate, to fabricate, to contaminate or whitewash, to justify; the speaker needs approval, or absolution, or acclaim, or worship, or laughter or sympathy. The monologue can only happen if the speaker has an audience. The monologue is ultimately the electric interaction between the audience and the speaker."
--from the introduction by Judith Thompson
