Audition Technique Virtual Weekend: 01) Monologue as Dialogue

Saturday // 1:00pm-4:00pm // May 30

For 9th Grade - Adult

A monologue is a character’s response to another person in a scene. Basically, it's the moment when one person gives a speech vocalizing their thoughts and feelings, in response to another character (or characters).

 

This one-day intensive will help you master the monologue by asking you how the other person is responding to what you're saying and teaching you to respond back honestly within the piece.

These classes can be taken separately or combined. ATC recommends taking both for a comprehensive training experience.

Instructors: LA Actors (ABC's "The Real O'Neals"), Mary Hollis Inboden & Matt Shively

You've done all the audition work, you're memorized, prepared, feeling like this role is YOURS… until you hear... “you might be better for this other role, can you go out, work on this, and come back in 10 minutes?” The dreaded cold read!

 

This one-day intensive will give you specific tools on how to do a quick breakdown and prioritize what you can bring back into the room. In 10 minutes.

These classes can be taken separately or combined. ATC recommends taking both for a comprehensive training experience.
