Please memorize one of the following monologues. Be sure to plan how you will act it out in your audition!

 

Cat in the Hat:

I can see that you’ve got quite a mind for your age! Why, one

Think and you dragged me right on to the stage! Now I’m here there is no telling what may ensue with a Cat such as me and a Thinker like you! Our story begins with a very strange sound the drums of a jungle beginning to pound. An unusual story will soon be unfurled of an elephant trying to save a small world. (Talk show voice) Our topic today is “Psychic Elephants who hear voices”. Whaddaya think folks, is the elephant off his trunk?

 

Horton:

I’ve been guarding this clover for over a week, getting laughed at for thinking a dust speck can speak. Well, let them all laugh I’ll try not to mind, for I have found something that they’ll never find.

Hello. Hello? Who’s there? You say it’s JoJo the Mayor’s son?

I’m Horton, the elephant. Are there more than one? Wow, JoJo you say that there’s a whole town? I’ll guard this speck carefully I won’t let you down. I meant what I said and I said what I meant an elephant’s faithful one hundred percent.

 

Gertrude:

I’m Poor little Gertrude! A sorry sight. Mayzie took me under her wing and now I’m all right! I had only 1 feather, hardly a tail, but Mayzie shared her plan and I knew it couldn’t fail. You see I flew to the doctor, the doctor named Dake whose office was highin a tree by the lake. I cried, Mr. Doctor, oh please do you know of some kind of pill that will make my tail grow?

Now I’ll cut to the chase, see the tail I’m sportin’? Amazing huh,do you think it will impress Horton?

 

Mayzie:

Hey Horton, would you maybe sit on my nest? I’m bored and I’m tired. I’m due for some rest. I won’t be gone long, kid, I give you my word. I’ll hurry right back, ‘cause I’m that sort of bird. Oh Horton, I promise I’ll fly back real soon. I’d only be gone for say, one afternoon. I’m sad and I’m cranky sitting day after day. I need a vacation. I need to get away. Don’t worry yourself about your friends down in “Who”. I’m off, thanks a million! Bye bye, tootle – loo!
