Frequently Asked Questions
What is a monologue?
Definition: a long speech by one actor in a play or movie, or as part of a theatrical or broadcast program. - Oxford Dictionary
Why do we study a monologue and not a scene?
We believe studying a monologue provides an opportunity for our students to dive deeper into the art of truth and self-confidence.
Most acting schools solely focus on two or more partnered scenes while we focus on both! We believe actors should always maintain a monologue in their back pocket to center themselves.
With a monologue, the actor inevitably learns to confidently hold their own space.

On May 20th, 2020 we had over 100 kids (and some parents) virtually tune in via Zoom to watch Amber Bela Muse host her "Acting Challenge Workshop."
