    Monologue Audition Prep 201: Embracing the Monologue 

    Take your audition prep to the next level before general audition season by joining Michael Mendelson for an in-depth coaching session. Break down any fear or uncertainty surrounding monologues in this focused workshop, designed to give you personal attention on your preparation.



    PATA is pleased to offer intermediate/advanced monologue and soliloquy coaching by a leading Portland teacher, director and actor. Read more about Michael Mendelson’s extensive biography here.


    All participants should take one prepared piece to work on and two more to discuss. You will have an opportunity to present one monologue/soliloquy twice. The workshop will cover:

    • Selecting your material: the how and the why

    • Given circumstances

    • The imaginary scene partner

    • The moment before: how to launch your piece and keep it active and alive


    Learn to prepare your piece with one of Portland’s finest coaches. Feel confident about choosing material and presenting your performance so you succeed in your next audition.


    There are just eight (8) spaces available sign up here today!
