Shakespeare Monologues that got my son into drama school… (by Klingons, Teletubbies, Tom Hiddleston and two year olds)

Shakespeare Monologues that helped my son get into drama school: Tom Hiddleston as Henry V

The fabulous Tom Hiddleston as Shakespeare's King Henry V: and thanks Tom, for inspiring him!

Non-diet update: My 12 year old son is auditioning for drama school today!

(Ed. Ok, I admit it: that was January and it's taken my this long to sort the videos out - and he did get in and starts next week, yay!)

So anyway, he has (or had) to perform two monologues, one modern and one classical (before 1912).

We were tempted by this one at first, but thought the original Klingon Hamlet might be a bit too classical for the admissions tutors:

Klingon Hamlet: Act 3, Scene 1, Line 64: 'To be, or not to be'


From the premiere of Klingon Hamlet: taH Pagh taHbe', a Still Picture Production performed by Brian Rivera and directed by Amir Sharafeh.

Is this the Best Magic The Gathering Card for Dieters?

 
Enormous Baloth

Enormous Baloth: Sounds like a dieter...

Hmm...

If we ever needed a Magic The Gathering mascot creature card for dieters, I think this could be it:

Its diet consists of fruits, plants, small woodland animals, large woodland animals, woodlands, fruit groves, fruit farmers, and small cities.

 
Starts off eating fruit and plants, ends up eating small cities, huh..?

Sounds like a diet to me! So here it is: The Enormous Baloth Diet!
