Did you know every actor needs a monologue, filmed in good quality, to showcase themselves and get an agent?

Did you know that most monologues are no longer stand alone dialogue scripts or soliloquies on stage?

Most monologues are now played on film & television, with scene partners, revealing the character’s heart and soul! Take a look at the popular series “This is Us”! There are several monologues in every episode!

With this course, we provide you with screenplay monologues that are right for you! It is an excellent starter course for aspiring actors because the material is not overwhelming. The class is light, singular, and focused only on one subject matter: mastering the monologue! On the last class, we film you at our pro studio. Actors in training or pros looking for a fresh outlook or new material on monologues benefit in taking this course. All students get a professional monologue reel filmed at our pro studio.
