More specifically, students will read monologues taken from the works of many contemporary authors. The focus of these readings will be “family ties”. As a group we will examine the ways in which families are bonded into units. After this introduction to the readings students will be guided through the process of script and character analysis which helps students build a character for the stage. Adequate time is then provided for the memorization of a monologue, rehearsal of actions and staging of the monologue, and an actual classroom performance of the monologues.
