Actingworks – Day Three
We’ve done some amazing work on these monologues since I recorded these clips, but I was very excited (even so early on) about the focus and commitment to the text that every single actor was able to find. We encourage family and friends to offer assistance practicing monologues and scenes at home, as it makes a huge difference in confidence.
So far three actors have completely memorized their dramatic monologue. Everyone is making great progress, and being very encouraging to their teammates. We try to break down the text into small, manageable chunks – learning a few words, then adding a few more words. Really, it’s no different than anyone would learn a piece of text, except it requires a bit more time and patience. But we’re having fun and everyone seems ecstatic about the ways in which they’re moving forward.
