Course description

Learn advanced acting skills in this monologue course in Sydney.

This eight-week course is designed for actors of some experience wanting to improve their skills at performing monologues. It’s run by creative industries leader Pete Malicki, who specialises in writing and teaching monologues.

This Monologue Performance course is designed to enhance actors' skills in one of the most critical yet neglected areas: the monologue. Whether it’s a short piece to impress in the audition room, or a standalone performance in its own right, every actor should have a strong monologue in their repertoire for when they want to showcase their talents to the right people.

Advanced Monologue Performance covers the following areas and more:
  • Understanding what makes a great monologue performance;
  • Analysing text: depth of understanding and mining a script for opportunities;
  • Performance techniques;
  • Rhythm, cadence and timing;
  • How to find, know, understand and become a character;
  • Giving and assimilating feedback;
  • How to find and select a suitable monologue;
  • The basics of writing and directing monologues and how this is relevant to a performer.
Please come prepared

It is ideal that you select a 5-10 minute monologue in advance to perform in the final week of the course.

It is also ideal you prepare a 60-90 second excerpt from this monologue to perform in the first week.
Selecting a monologue prior to the course starting gives you a little extra time to get familiar with it and start learning the lines.

However, if you would rather wait, that’s fine. If you have no idea where to find monologues, there are 35 available on the tutor’s website www.monologues.com.au
