Monologue/Audition Prep Intensive - Multiple Dates in November/December
Our Monologue/Audition Prep Intensive is a seven-hour package that includes 4 hours of individual work in a group setting (way more fun and a great way to get varied feedback and serve as silent/invisible scene partners for each other); 2 hours of private coaching; 1 hour of video services to ensure a high quality video submission. This coaching and intensive is focused on acting monologues, but can be individualized to work on musical theatre auditions, as well as auditions and interviews for OCSA's Integrated Arts Academy. It includes monologue suggestions and personalized advice specific to each person's individual needs.
