Summer Intensive: Monologue Training for Drama School

Katzplace Theatre, London Bridge, 24 Southwark Street, London, SE1 1TY

2nd September - 6th September, 12:00 - 18:00

How will the course run? 

The course will run daily from 2nd September until 6th September from 12pm-6pm. 

On the final day we will have a mock audition with a panel of industry professionals who will provide you with feedback on your monologues.  

What will we cover?

This intensive week will look at the audition process and how to perfect your audition speeches as well as holding mock audition to get you well prepared for you upcoming drama school auditions.  We will look at the speeches as detailed below. 

Shakespeare: Through a series of exercises (ensemble & solo) you will be able to break down your Shakespeare monologue to a professional standard, have a competent understanding of the iambic pentameter and be able to take ownership over your speech.

Contemporary: Through a series of exercises, using (Stanislavski, Meisner, Lecoq & Laban) you will explore new ways of delivering your monologue. You will be able to develop character through endowments, learn to recognise and tackle your own bad habits and gain the confidence to let us (the audience / audition panel) into your world.


What will you leave with? 

Direction on your monologues and feedback from industry professionals. A first-hand written account from drama school graduates about the audition process at their school and how they differ from other drama schools to help to find the right school for you. An idea of how the industry you are interested in works and how to excel and impress at your audition and in all future auditions.  


How much will it be? 

The cost of the course is £375 for the week.
