Description: his class is for those who wish to have a monologue in their back pocket for those auditions, be it local community or for school!

The program concludes with a Showcase where students will perform their audition selections in front of a panel of local performing arts professionals who will give encouraging real-life feedback! Please note this is an intensive session - there are “homework” assignments, line memorization, the necessary ability to focus and the need for dedication.
