Does your audition monologue need a fresh set of eyes & ears?From the second you walk into an audition room to the company's final, "Thanks for coming!" you have ample opportunities to make a positive lasting impression with casting directors and production staff. For 2 hours, The Brown Paper Box Co. will create a supportive and informative atmosphere working through monologues and audition techniques for up to 10 actors. We'll also have space in the room for those wishing to audit the workshop.
$15 to perform and work your monologue (10 slots available).
$5 to audit and not perform (up to 8 slots available).
Please prepare one 90-second contemporary monologue and dress as if you were attending a real audition. Come prepared to take some notes (recording devices are ok!), gain some advice, and have a fun afternoon.
To attend our monologue workshop, please book your slot here. Space is limited, so book while you can!
