This six week workshop, taught by Lynn Sotos via Zoom, will provide the participant with a supportive environment in which to develop a monologue in verse from one of Shakespeare’s plays. The monologue can be a new challenge, or one that is dusted off from the past! In each session, the actor will learn to make effective choices based on clues written in the text. And each participant will have the option of performing their monologue in a Zoom showcase for a small, invited audience.
Says Lynn, “Shakespeare monologues embody characters that are larger than life and great fun for actors to play. Classical monologues are an asset for auditioning actors and will be useful for upcoming MTC auditions.”
