Monologues and Auditions for Teens

Presented by Claudia Terry

Monologues and Auditions for Teens is a four-session workshop for acting students interested in developing their monologue skills for audition and performance. Start preparing your auditions for college and high school admissions!

In this workshop, we will focus on the preparation of two contrasting monologues, the common requirement for auditions. We will take you through the process of choosing monologues and crafting dynamic monologue performances, with a focus on characterization, finding the beats, using the space effectively, and making strong, specific, meaningful connections to the language and circumstances of the play. The workshop will leave you prepared to show up to the audition room confident and ready.

Those who are not auditioning but would like to practice monologues for performance are welcomed and encouraged to join as well.

While geared towards teens, younger students who have previously studied with at HB Studio are also invited to sign up.

For the first day of class: It is suggested that you come on the first day with one or two monologues selected. Monologues must be selected from plays, not monologue books nor TV nor film.
