Monologues aren’t easy, especially for beginning actors. They can involve an overwhelming amount of text to memorize, block and develop into an engaging presentation.

But they are also an excellent tool for students to demonstrate learned skills: vocal skills, movement skills, memorization skills, and character development.

The 30-Second Monologue Project

The 30-Second Monologue Project breaks down the process into four lessons. You'll find:

  • Non-verbal monologue
  • One-line monologue
  • Three-line monologue
  • 30-Second monologue

Includes physical warm-up games, monologues (male, female, and any gender) assessments and rubrics.
