Shakespeare shouldn’t have to be scary, in fact, it should be a relief for actors. Refresh your memory on Shakespearean technique and empower yourself to use this set of “rules” as a guide for success when you audition with classical text.
Bring a memorized 2 minute classical monologue and be prepared to receive feedback on your scansion, your delivery and tactics, and your general audition technique.
Each participant will have 10-15 minutes to work with McLean in front of the class. You will be given adjustments and suggestions on your monologue material and performance. Class will culminate with a discussion on different methods for approaching Shakespeare.
