Designed with our core students in mind, our beginning monologue course is ideal for those looking to start or expand upon their arsenal of audition material. Throughout this 5 week course, you will learn tips and tricks to source your own monologues - pieces that are unique, exciting, and show off your dynamic range. Using these pieces, in conjunction with Shurtleff’s 12 Guideposts, your instructor will guide you through the process of:
Breaking down your text in order to find strong actions, dramatic build, and direct storytelling.
Creating a clear and specific imaginary partner to help inform your choices.
Keeping yourself grounded in the room and using the entire space to your advantage
At the end of this course, students will have 1 new polished piece in their back pocket to present to agents, casting associates, and directors.
