w/ JOHN LITTEN
A monologue is one of an actor's essential tools. Auditions for stage, TV, film, and talent agency interviews often require a monologue performance.
A monologue is a speech; an important dramatic or comedic moment from a play, film, or other literary text; performed by one actor. Monologue study enhances an actor's ability to tell a convincing story.
FOCUS: Improve characterization, concentration, articulation, emotional range, communicating images, text interpretation, memorization skills and improvisation. Monologues are 1-2 minutes. This course is designed for continuing students or new students w/ previous training or performing experience. For those who have studied monologues elsewhere, you will discover new techniques that will deepen your knowledge with a new coach.
PARENTS ATTEND the last class for a review, evaluations and consultations. If a student is not available a parent can attend.
