For many actors, MONOLOGUES are scary, because an actor has no one to “play against” (or react to). This class teaches that once an actor begins to understand how to break down a monologue into its objective (Why the monologue is being presented), the tactics they use to achieve it (The choices the character makes to accomplish the purpose of the piece), and the obstacles they must fight (The challenges to the character in relating it), they begin to realize that a monologue is a welcome opportunity to showcase the choices they make (and the permission to make them!), their unique abilities, and the chance to tell a story to a captive audience in the most unique way possible—THEIR way. Great for auditions and to build confidence in an actors’ repertoire!
