Coaching Sessions

Coaching Sessions are not mandatory but are highly encouraged for all participants of the Next Narrative Monologue Competition. These drop-in sessions will provide one-on-one support from various different Teaching Artists who will help bring out your best monologue performance. These sessions are acting, public speaking, and performance masterclasses that will build your skills beyond the competition itself in addition to preparing you to compete. You can come to as many or as few coaching sessions as you choose.
