Stage Director: Opera-Theatre-Musicals
Many companies are adding spoken monologues to their audition process. Whether having worked on monologues in school or never having learned to approach one, singers find themselves struggling with their voices and acting skills because they believe monologues are intimidating.
Although speeches are intrinsic to the entire scene, they have a “completeness” all their own: a dramatic build, a climax, a chute and conclusion. Like singing an aria, the performer must divide the speech into playable beats of action and not be tempted to play it as a single wash of emotion.
Drawing on his skills as an actor, director, and coach, Chuck Hudson offers you the keys to enjoying monologues in this master class. You will learn to approach a monologue, to discover your argument and intention, to arrange the beats of action in a dramatically compelling way, and to draw on your already rich vocal range while speaking.
Chuck will also provide a monologue for you so you do not need to search for one!
