This class is designed for those who are looking to sharpen their monologue repertoire and theatre audition skills. It is perfect for those who are auditioning for performing arts high schools or for local theaters. Students are encouraged to bring their own material to work through; there will be poems and monologues available to help students understand which audition pieces would better serve them during certain auditions. The goal is for students to leave the class with prepared material and the confidence to do well in their auditions! $20 class fee.
