The Monologue Project produces two major shows - the adult show (extra)ordinary, (un)usual and our high school show HSC Monologues.
We are planning to stage (extra)ordinary, (un)usual IV soon. However, our team is focused in developing a major new project which will be launched in June 2017, so there may not be any further shows until after that point in time.
The Monologue Project's stage show (extra)ordinary, (un)usual is Australia's leading monologues showcase, featuring the versatile and award-winning work of author/playwright Pete Malicki performed by Sydney's best stage actors.
It features two acts of 4x monologues each, with the occasional 'easter egg' (you'll have to come along to find out what that means!).
The monologues have been performed in Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland, the US, India, Malaysia and Singapore, with shows in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and on Brighton's West End. (extra)ordinary, (un)usual was actually first performed in Chennai, India!
You'll have the chance to mingle with the cast after the show and chat about their experiences as professional actors.
The aim of this entertaining monologue showcase is to provide high school drama students with pieces they can use for their Individual Project: Performance exam and ideas on how to develop a dynamic performance out of text.
It's often a struggle for HSC students to find a good monologue for their exams. This show is the perfect way to expose students to contemporary, relevant and exciting work for them to choose from.
HSC Monologues consists of 6-8 monologues performed by professional actors. They have all been adapted to be suitable for a high school audience, with profanity reduced/removed and plenty of movement incorporated.
The Monologue Project has a wide range of available monologues that can be performed. Let us put a show together for you, or hand pick the ones you'd like to see performed from our set of available monologues.
Students will be able to have a discussion with the cast after the show and get advice on performance techniques from working professional actors.
