Polish your next audition monologue!
Each artist will briefly share his/her/their goals for the workshop and upcoming audition. Ian will quickly discuss monologues in the audition environment. All actors will be led through a few invigorating group warm-ups. Each actor will be guided through various mission-specific run-throughs of their pieces and will be given feedback, adjustments and be able to share a final "performance" of their piece/pieces.
Please come prepared with your 90-second monologue(s) memorized.

From AC Members:
Ian's monologue classes are an absolute steal, and the biggest bargain in town!
Ian is a remarkable teacher!
He is down to earth, and not preachy or full of ego. He enjoys sharing his love of the craft.
He came fully prepared, ready and happy to work hard with us. His suggestions/coachings were clear and short, so easier to understand and try to incorporate.
