Words, Words, Words, Constructing a Monologue: a class for actors and writers.
Six classes meeting once a week exploring: What makes a great monologue great? How do you create dynamic solo theater? What are the roles of the actor and writer? You will work on a Shakespeare monologue and then create your own. More information on the Workshop Page. Watch for classes in Spring 2020.
Ben Jonson once said, “Shakespeare was not of an age, but for all time.”
We would add that Shakespeare is not only for all time, but for all ages too.
