This event is in the past.

Are your monologues getting you results? Why are you doing a particular monologue and what result is it intended to produce? In this course, actors will be given and intensely coached on three new monologues selected especially for you by Brian. You'll also learn: who will be casting what on stage in New York up to two years in advance; how to target writers and directors directly; how to get work on the remaining Soaps in New York(and why you should!); how to become a working member of the unions; effective ways to correspond with agents; PLUS what you need to know about photos, resumes and other tools of the trade. Participants will learn how to approach their careers in a new way-and create quality opportunities for themselves. Over 2,000 actors have found representation and work after being coached by Brian. Brian O'Neil is the author of "Acting as a Business" and is considered one of the industry's gurus when it comes to both monologues and marketing. Brian helped launch the careers of hundreds of actors including Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick and has been teaching his ever popular monologue class for over two decades EVERYWHERE from universities including Yale and Juilliard, to private acting studios and has coached thousands of actors in choosing monologues that fit the roles you are right for! Brian is an expert when it comes to finding material and his unique insight into what theaters and casting directors look for when hearing monologues will bring you one step closer to that coveted job. This is a real opportunity to work with a master in a safe, supportive working environment!! Limited to 10 actors ***Please have a Monologue prepared for the first week of class!*** REMEMBER TO UPLOAD YOUR HEADSHOT AND RESUME TO YOUR ONLINE ACCOUNT UPON REGISTERING! "Brian has the ability to make the right monologue open doors for actors at all levels. While many can be intimidated by the daunting task of fine-tuning a monologue that's right for them, Brian's monologue workshop makes it easy. His one-on-one scene coaching has been vitally important to me, and now I see that his monologue coaching is priceless. I highly recommend it!"-Stephen Gregory, Dr. Kyle Beresford, Law & Order: SVU "I wanted to say "thank you" again for a wonderful 6 weeks. It was the most useful, informative and practical workshop I've ever taken; I feel much less intimidated by both performing and finding monologues. In addition to being inspired by the monologues you recommended for me, I was intrigued by monologues you gave to other people and have been thinking about past scenes I've done in acting class and realizing that there are monologues I could mine from them. I am also hugely grateful that you included all the discussions about the business side of this profession. I appreciate it because first and foremost it puts me in a greater position of control with regards to my career, and secondly because your information streamlines and prioritizes all the various components of the acting business. I am much clearer about the most efficient places to spend my time and energy and am looking forward to implementing your advice in the months ahead."-Melissa Macleod Herion
