Check back soon for our Winter 2024 class schedule.
Fall is here! School is back in session and so is Classics on the Rocks! If you’re looking to brush up your Shakespeare or just play in a room filled with supportive classical theater nerds, then we invite you to join us Wednesday, September 20th at 7pm for Classics on the Rocks’ open-level monologue masterclass - MasterClassics.
Whether you're looking to enhance an existing monologue, try out new material to expand your book, prepare for an upcoming audition, gain more confidence performing in front of others, or simply want to play with some text - we're here to help.
When: Wednesday, September 20, 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Where: Ripley Grier Studios
Cost: $15 suggested or pay what you can (cash, venmo, or zelle)
Please RSVP here to reserve your spot. We will close the class when we reach capacity to ensure all participants have time to work and play with their piece.
What to Expect from the Class
We ask that all participants prepare a 1-2 min classical Shakespeare monologue. (If you don't have a piece in mind let us know in the RSVP form and we will be happy to suggest one for you.)
Class will begin with an interactive discussion and warm-up exercise designed to help each Actor fully explore Shakespeare's text, followed by coaching work through each participants monologue. Each student will have between 8-12 minutes of dedicated time to work their piece and receive feedback from the teachers.
We've been on both sides of the table and know how stressful and time-consuming picking the right piece can be. We'll bring a fresh set of eyes and ears to give you a new take on your existing piece.
Class size is limited. Please note that if you are looking for a new piece to work on, make that request on the above form, no later than 1 week before class.
