Theater/Acting Classes and Workshops

Monologue Coaching - starts 1/8/19 - (posted by Capital City Theatre)

MONOLOGUE COACHING
Led my Whitney Derendinger
Tuesdays 7pm-9pm
First class: January 8th
Last class: February 5th
Tuition: $200
No Drop Ins, full tuition only
Class size limit: 16
Location: TBD
Register at: https://capitalcitytheatre.org/new-page-92/

This course is an intensive training course in developing monologues in preparation for audition, but will also build upon Stanislavski principles to enhance work being the audition. We will explore techniques for the pieces you bring in, as well as develop techniques and training that you can bring to your future work. We will explore:

Monologue selection

Monologue development and polishing

Script analysis

Audition etiquette

Exercises for monologue exploration

Audition techniques and preparation

Audition curve balls

Monologue and audition traps

Cold readings

Everyone will be on their feet, working and developing their pieces every day. Work will consist of developing the physical and vocal life of the actor through individual, partnered, and small group exercises. Through these exercises, we will: find the fundamental drama within a text; invest new life into old pieces; cultivate a skill set for approaching new work; and prepare the actor for the challenges of the audition, the callback, and beyond.

Please come in with at least one memorized, polished monologue for day one. Two (or more) is great, but I ask that you have one piece solidly up on its feet so we can start when you walk in the room.
