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.

Ages 16+. Participants of all levels and performance experience are welcome. Please wear comfortable clothing to move in, a notepad, and a water bottle.

If this paragraph was full of words you didn’t understand, then this may be the right class for you!

Students are asked to bring a pencil and water bottle. Though this is a music-focused class, we ask that all participants wear closed-toe shoes for their safety.

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.
