Monologue Workshop Series for Teens & Adults
Jan. 22, Jan. 29, Feb. 5
ARTfactory, 9419 Battle St, Manassas

This 3-week course offers the actor tools for preparing audition monologues. Class work includes tools for relaxation, selecting monologues, monologue scoring and preparation. Students will find their own monologues as well as recommendations from the instructor.  Each week we will explore various techniques for monologue selection and preparation. It is perfect for those who are auditioning for performing arts high schools, colleges/universities or the industry in general.

Saturday, January 22, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Prior to the first session, you will be sent a comprehensive list of plays and monologue suggestions to review and read. You will then choose 2 or 3 monologues to bring to our first session. We will review your choices and discuss how to choose a good monologue, what should it showcase, where to find one, which ones not to use and how we use them for the audition process. We will be working with Michael Shurtleff’s book Audition and explore his audition techniques and his 12 guideposts.

Saturday, January 29, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

You will bring in 2-3 NEW monologues to read, and we will choose one or two to work on during the workshop. We will apply Michael Shurtleff’s 12 guideposts to both of our pieces and get them on their feet.  We will also workshop our pieces with sounds, being, body, breath, and text work.

Saturday, February 5, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Today we will focus on process and performance.  We will continue to explore the techniques we have worked on previously and receive direct coaching on your monologue so you will feel more confident.  We will close the workshop with a mock audition and feedback from local professionals.

By the end of this workshop series you will have at least one new monologue that is audition-ready and showcases you, know how to approach new material and tools for showcasing your ability and tips and tricks for the audition process.
