Testimonials: qAfter endless hours searching for that 'right' monologue I stumbled across a real gem titled 'Director's Fury' penned by Albert Jamae. I have chosen to perform 'Director's Fury' at Manchester's Monologue Slam as it is a cracking no nonsense piece and will really grab an audience's attention, as well as this I have now been introduced to a marvelous collection of monologues that I plan use at many castings in the future. For those looking for a monologue that is a little bit different and individual but yet can still hold a good sense of reality, then Jamae is your man!q Leo Flanagan: Actor - Manchester, United Kingdom. qI have been teaching adults, teenagers, and youngsters 7-10 yrs old, recently for Industry Actors HQ in Brisbane, and have used a great deal of Albert Jamae's scripts in the workshops. The scripts are mercifully short, relevant and interesting, and most importantly, students relate to the situations. The scripts allow actors to make a variety of choices to enhance their performances. I thoroughly recommend these scripts to all drama teachers, casting people, and of course actors who should have the volumes online and in hard copy waiting for that time when they have to produce a monologue at a moment's notice!q Sue Manger: Casting Associate - McLeod's Daughters. Casting Director - The Young Doctors, Bellamy, and Australia's Most Wanted. qHooray for an original Australian audition manual! This will be a great addition to any Australian actor's bag of tricks; concise, entertaining and in our own vernacular.q Caitlin MacDougall: Actress - The Alice, Always Greener qThis audition manual is a great idea and a must for every actor. There are few around for an Australian market and few that are as simple and straight forward in delivery and style. It will also be a useful tool for Casting Directors, with unique and interesting pieces to work with in order to see various actor's strengths and weaknesses.q Wizzy Evans: Casting Director - The Secret Life of Us, Last Man StandingFACT: All emerging actors are looking for an advantage - well this is it!
