“Boot Camp” is back for more!

Aloha Theatre will be holding auditions for their production of The Laramie Project, based on the true story of the 1998 murder turned hate crime committed in Laramie, Wyoming, written by playwright Moises Kaufman, on April 6 and 7…are you ready?

We want YOU to feel as prepared and confident as possible by offering an “Audition Boot Camp”, bringing interested auditionees the details, material, and support to ensure a successful audition experience!

It’s time to flex those acting muscles! On Saturday, March 28, come and explore the context of this production, as well as the vital tools to prepare for a dramatic play in this special Laramie Project-themed Audition Boot Camp. Train with Jerry Tracy, Director of the upcoming production, as he gets you in shape through performing monologues, improvisation, physical characterization, and public speaking techniques! He’ll also provide more information about the components of this production, audition tips, and other sneak peek opportunities for interested auditionees.

Participants of all levels and performance experience are welcome. Please wear comfortable clothing to move in, a notepad, and a water bottle. All participants must wear toe-covered shoes, or they will be asked to observe the workshop from the audience. Space is limited to 20 participants, so register today!

Monologue Workspace

Ages 16+
Sunday; April 5, 2020
Participating: $7 early online registration; $10 day of/walk-in
Observing: $5 early online registration only
Our 4th quarter classes and workshops are postponed until further notice.

Getting ready for an audition? Want some extra professional feedback, tips, and tricks to perform your monologue to your best abilities?

Join professional entertainer and CREATE’s Education Director, Jaquelynn Jeanne Collier, as she facilitates a monologue “workspace” for actors to gain additional feedback for their upcoming auditions. Here, actors are invited to treat the studio as a safe space and share their monologues with fellow artists to gather advice, tools, and tricks to perfect their piece. Every actor is different, so individual feedback will also be different!

To ensure there is time for everyone to “work” their monologues, space is limited to 10 people. Once registered, an email will be sent with full class plans and time assignments. If you cannot make the full 3 hours, THAT’S OKAY! If you have scheduling conflicts, please email us for a specific reservation time.

Participants are required to come prepared with at least 1 monologue (familiarized or memorized). Please also bring something to take notes in/with, a water bottle, and closed-toe shoes.

If you’re interested in learning about monologues, but do not have a monologue to share, ALL are welcome to register as an “observer” to watch and gain feedback through an audience perspective.

Class Minimum Policy
As we continue expanding the variety of affordable classes requested via community feedback, we must maintain a minimum number of registered students in all educational events to cover facility and instructional fees. If classes or workshops do not reach the minimum, we are unable to hold that event. If a class or workshop does not have a minimum of six students registered 24 hours before the program, that program will be canceled or postponed to a later start date.
Don’t risk programs getting canceled, and save money! We offer discounted rates for registering early online or calling our office in advance of the event’s start date. We also offer scholarships via application. Email us for more information.
