THE GOOD AUDITION GUIDES: Helping you select and perform the audition piece that is best suited to your performing skills As an actor at any level - whether you are doing theatre studies at school, taking part in youth theatre, preparing for drama-school showcases, or attending professional acting workshops - you will often be required to prepare a duologue with a fellow performer. Your success is often based on locating and selecting a fresh, dynamic scene suited to your specific performing skills, as well as your interplay as a duo. Which is where this book comes in. This collection features twenty-five fantastic duologues for two women, almost all written since the year 2000 by some of our most exciting dramatic voices, offering a wide variety of character types and styles of writing. Playwrights featured include Alexi Kaye Campbell, Helen Edmundson, Vivienne Franzmann, Sam Holcroft, Anna Jordan, Chlo� Moss, Rona Munro, Lynn Nottage, Evan Placey and Jessica Swale, and the plays themselves were premiered at the very best theatres across the UK including the National Theatre, Manchester Royal Exchange, Shakespeare's Globe, and the Almeida, Bush, Soho, Royal Court and Tricycle Theatres. Drawing on her experience as an actor, director and teacher at several leading drama schools, Trilby James equips each duologue with a thorough introduction including the vital information you need to place the piece in context (the who, what, when, where and why) and suggestions about how to perform the scene to its maximum effect (including the characters' objectives). The collection also features an introduction on the whole process of selecting and preparing a duologue, and how to present it to the greatest effect. The result is the most comprehensive and useful contemporary duologue book of its kind now available.

A Beginning Singer's Guide is a vocal pedagogy with four practical uses. First, it can be used as a collateral text for studio voice lessons. The teacher can conserve time by assigning relevant reading in the book instead of making lengthy expositions during the lesson. Second, it can be used as a primary text for undergraduate vocal pedagogy classes. Many schools offer a vocal pedagogy class whose enrollment includes singers and future choral conductors. A special chapter for the future choral conductor containing methods and other aids should meet the need for an all-in-one text for this class. Third, it can be used as a practical guide for new voice teachers. A special chapter containing methods for new voice teachers and studio administration will be very useful to the new teacher of voice. Fourth, the book explores subjects not usually covered in music pedagogy books, such as notes on working with a pianist, improving memory, common acting terms, subtexting, and methods for alleviating performance anxiety. These important, yet often disregarded areas, further complement a singer's talent and skill. The author does not espouse any particular 'method' of singing; instead, he applies a universal, scientific approach with the firm belief that singing can be enhanced through further musical knowledge. The sequence of the book follows the natural sequence of learning to sing. The book is rounded out with line art of the vocal mechanism, musical examples, tables outlining the musculature of singing, practical forms, information for the beginning teacher, and a bibliography.

Yasmina Rezas Stücke sind grandioses Theater, aber auch ein großes Lesevergnügen. Der Gott des Gemetzels, 2006 im Schauspielhaus Zürich uraufgeführt, spielt auf der Grenze zwischen Gesellschaftssatire und menschlichem Desaster. Zwei Elfjährige haben sich geprügelt, dabei schlug der eine dem anderen zwei Zähne aus. Die beiden Elternpaare treffen sich zum klärenden Gespräch. Hinter der Fassade bürgerlicher Wohlanständigkeit tun sich Abgründe auf – schockierend und komisch zugleich. Der Gott des Gemetzels wurde zu Yasmina Rezas bekanntestem Stück, nicht zuletzt durch Roman Polanskis Verfilmung 2011 mit Kate Winslet und Christoph Waltz.

Die Möwe ist ein Drama von Anton Tschechow aus dem Jahre 1895. Tschechows Stück spielt auf dem Land im zaristischen Russland der Jahrhundertwende (19./20. Jahrhundert). In schrecklicher Langeweile öden die Gäste auf einem Landsitz einander an: Sie gehen sich mit kleinen Sticheleien auf die Nerven und machen sich so das Leben zur Hölle. Der Sohn einer Schauspielerin, Konstantin Gavrilovič Treplev, möchte Schriftsteller werden und hat ein kleines Theaterstück geschrieben, welches am Abend auf einer improvisierten Bühne den Gästen vorgespielt werden soll. Die Hauptrolle spielt dabei seine Geliebte und Muse Nina. Treplev leidet jedoch unter der ständigen Nörgelei seiner Mutter, die sein schriftstellerisches Talent und sein ganzes Leben in Frage stellt. Außerdem hat sie einen Freund, Boris Alekseevič Trigorin, der ebenfalls und bereits sehr erfolgreich Schriftsteller ist. Diesen Trigorin führt sie immer wieder an, wenn sie versucht, Treplevs Selbstvertrauen in sich und seine Arbeit zu schwächen. Bei der Aufführung von Treplevs Stück kommt es schließlich zum Eklat, Mutter und Sohn geraten in Streit. Mehr und mehr zeigt sich, dass Nina sich zu Trigorin hingezogen fühlt...

Viel Lärm um nichts ist eine Komödie um Liebe und Intrigen von William Shakespeare; sie unterscheidet sich von Shakespeares anderen romanesken Komödien durch den realeren Bezug zur Liebe. Claudio interessiert sich vor allem für Heros Erbschaft, Benedikt und Beatrice erliegen nicht der konventionellen Augenliebe, sondern finden sich erst nach Einmischungen der anderen Figuren. Besonders hervorstechend ist das Spiel mit dem Sein und dem Schein, worauf schon das Wortspiel im Titel hinweist – nothing und noting („nichts“ und „wahrnehmen, erkennen“). Damit sind einerseits die Intrigen gegen Hero, andererseits die Sitten der höfischen Selbstinszenierung, insbesondere bei Benedikt und Beatrice, gemeint. Geschrieben wurde das Stück 1598/99 und erstmals in der Quartoausgabe von 1600 gedruckt.
