Spend this autumn selecting, rehearsing and performing monologues that showcase your strengths as a performer!
In this intensive class, we will delve into acting techniques, explore textual analysis, physically train the actor’s body and voice, and discuss/practice audition strategies. Class concludes with a showcase of monologues. The class is devised to hone two monologues, but dedicated students have prepared up to four.
This class is ideal for high school seniors who are preparing audition monologues for college, or anyone who wants to prepare themselves for college, professional, or Shakespeare Troupe auditions. Alternatively, this class can be taken to expand your range as a performer by tackling monologues of new character types.
300 people auditioned. 22 people were cast. My son, who was a Traveling Players student for many years, will make his Muhlenberg Mainstage debut this November in the Greek tragedy ‘Agamemnon.’ He is one of only a very few freshmen to be cast in any of the school’s Mainstage productions.
