Adult Intermediate


Monologue auditions are the Chicago actor's bread and butter. Whether you’re planning to audition for graduate school, are preparing for season generals, or haven’t updated your audition package in a while, you deserve to feel excited and confident about your pieces. 

In this course, experienced instructor Kurt Naebig will hand-pick and help you prepare three monologues: two contrasting contemporary pieces and a third additional contemporary or classical/heightened piece. With his remarkable ability to discover pieces especially suited to each actor, Kurt will guide you to develop active, interesting monologues that showcase your unique talent. By the final class, you’ll graduate with a new arsenal of exciting material, ready to hit the audition room.  

Required: Prior experience and training as determined by headshot and resume, and audition for the instructor.

More about Kurt



Kurt Naebig (Monologue In Person) always brought a spirit of excellence to class. He worked so diligently with each and every student - even when someone was struggling he never gave up and because of that all of us grew to be better actors in his class.

By the second class I felt very at home at ASC. Great energy from faculty, staff and students made it possible to feel comfortable quickly. That comfort makes you really want to go for it - taking risks with your work- and discovering more at a faster rate.

I love how Kurt Naebig stressed the importance of actors using actions and made it so clear as to how to use them in Monologue In Person. I've been studying acting for over a decade and actions have never really clicked until now! He also selected such good material for all of us and helped us find the humor in all of our pieces.

Kurt (Naebig - Monologue Online) always gave everyone a fair shot to work on their pieces. His feedback was helpful, thoughtful, and always respectful to whomever he was working with. He answered some of the questions that I didn't know how to ask.
