Program Description


We’ll select an appropriate monologue and work with you one-on-one so you are confident going into auditions. Using script analysis techniques and games, you’ll learn how to get into your character’s skin and walk in their shoes. We’ll also dig deep into a scene selected specifically for you! Working closely with a scene partner, you’ll learn how to listen and respond truthfully when sharing a scene.


  • In lieu of BAL’s traditional shared performance, students will be included in a video reel showcasing highlights and vignettes from the week’s online collaborations.
  • A direct link to the video(s) will be provided to share with friends and family.
  • Please allow reasonable time after the session ends for professional production and editing.
