Monologue Madness

Bring your favourite monologues! 
We will focus on script breakdown, connecting emotions, impactful delivery and confidence. You will learn to create moments before, character breakdowns, script analysis, and explore all sides of your character. The work you learn in this intensive can then be applied to future monologues and scenes you work on. 
This is the perfect intensive if you want to sharpen your skills and prepare for future auditions. You may choose to bring either a monologue from contemporary theatre or film.
