Monologue Intensive with Sharon Bajer

Our workshop series is designed to help emerging artists hone their craft – whether by strengthening a particular skill, learning more about the business of being an artist, or by creating networking opportunities to learn how the pros became pros! Through our workshops, artists of all experience levels can continue developing their skillset on their way to becoming professionals.

The Monologue Intensive is one of two performance workshops we’ve hosted this season, the first being The Actor’s Voice with Tom Soares. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, every actor needs a good polished monologue to keep in their back pocket. Picking the right one can be tricky – but luckily, Sarasvàti Productions is here to help! The Monologue Intensive this spring will help you nail your next audition.

The monologue is often considered the bane of an actor’s existence, but is still necessary for auditions. This workshop will introduce the participants to some unique techniques for strengthening their monologue skills and deepening their understanding of them. Participants are asked to come to the workshop with 2 contrasting memorized monologues – they should be from plays, each less than 2 minutes long.
