Virtual Audition Prep
OVERVIEW & CATEGORIES
Our online Virtual Auditions are open to any aspiring talent age 4 years and older who are interested in being signed as a talent with Nine9. No prior experience is necessary. Note: A parent or guardian is required to be present during the audition for any applicant under the age of 18. You can audition for one or more of the categories listed below
Choose one of the monologues below or prepare a short monologue of your choice (under 60 seconds) that you should memorize to perform during your audition time. Experienced actors can verbally detail any experience prior to their read.
Nine9 works with all ages and types of models including high-fashion, promotional, plus, fitness, etc. Talent will be evaluated based on looks, photogenic quality, presence and personality. At the time of the audition, models will be asked to walk forward, profile (turn face from side to side), turn around and walk back to the starting position. It should occur in a well-lit and open space.
Perform for up to 60 seconds either acappella, accompanying yourself or sing to a backup track. If you are singing to music, you must be ready to go when it is your time to shine! Only individuals will be considered so no group or bands.
Solo performers only but any type of dance can audition. Dance routines should be under 60 seconds. Broadway-style routines which include both singing and dancing will be considered. Depending on the style, dancers may be asked to email a performance video as part of the evaluation process.

ACTING SCRIPTS (select one to perform)
Some people think I don’t like sharing, but that isn’t true at all. I love sharing. I mean, what’s not to love about being able to go up to someone and say, “Hey, can I have some of those fries?” And then they give you some! Or, “Can I borrow your phone for a while?” And then you get to use their data! Sharing is awesome. Sometimes you have to be careful, though. Like if someone comes up to me and says, “Can I have one of your cookies?” Well, if I gave them a cookie, then I might not have any cookies left to share with other people and that would be, like, the opposite of sharing. So I have to say no. Because sharing is really important.
When I was little, we had this big dog Scout. Mom said he was a total mutt but I think he was part collie. And maybe part retriever. But he was definitely at least half mutt. Scout was supposed to be the whole family’s dog but he was really mine. I mean, after school, it was me he would be waiting for. And when anyone threw his ball, I’m the one he always brought it back to. And at night, it was always my bed he slept in. But one time we moved and my mom said we couldn’t take him so we had to give him to my cousin Mark. I don’t really talk about it but sometimes I dream about Scout. He’s got his ball in his mouth and he’s looking for me. And I’m saying, “Here, Scout. I’m right here.” But he doesn’t hear me and can’t see me, and I’m saying, “I’m right here. Scout. I’m right here.” And then, I don’t know, I guess I wake up.
Bring it. I will outwork you, outplay you, out hustle you and out think you. When you put in ten hours, I put in twenty. I work until I can’t see straight, every single day because I want it more than you do. I see it more than you do. I taste it, breathe it, smell it…I am it. Until I die. While you’re out there being the bum that you are…I’m grinding hard, real hard, sweating and screaming and stressing and pushing…past the limit, past the breaking point. You play it, I live it. That’s why it’s mine.
You act differently. Whenever we are all hanging out, you put on this macho man type act. You don’t act like you when you’re in front of your friends. I don’t like it. Why do you do that? You are so sweet and kind to me when we are alone together but as soon as we are chilling out with your boys, you treat me different. You tease me like you’re mocking me. Just be you from now on because you make me feel like what we have together is a lie when you treat me like you don’t even care about me, in front of your friends. Okay?
