Ever wanted to write a play but don’t know where to start? Short plays are becoming increasingly popular, with numerous events around Sydney focusing on the form.

As part of the course, I can assist you getting your play into Crash Test Drama and/or Short+Sweet Sydney.

Acting - Monologue Performance
Sat 16 Feb - Sat 30 Mar 2019

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.
