Who is this for:
This class is for anyone interested in working deeply on monologues for performance and castings. As the Pandemic forced much of TV/Film casting online, this class will help the students gain confidence on camera and nail both performance and casting.
Also, for students that are interested in auditioning for performing arts schools and acting programs, this class is an ideal place to work on material to prepare for school auditions. It’s the students’ responsibility to find and bring monologues to class.
Ultimately, a basic introduction to an actor for an audience is through monologue work. Working with Raymond individually within the class structure and also seeing other actors’ work, the students will gain a deeper understanding of the material and their personal connection to it. Through this work, the student will find confidence and creativity in their monologues.
Beyond castings and school auditions, students could come together and perform their monologues in a ‘monologue jam,’ hosted at the end of the term at CCB. To truly understand the material we often need to have our work before an audience that is more welcoming than castings and auditions can be.
