Monologue Class with New York Director, John Farrell


Monologue Class

Every aspiring actor needs a monologue or two: memorised, polished and richly performed that can be guaranteed to display your abilities to your best advantage.  These are a mainstay for most audition opportunities

This class is intended for any and all performers who aspire to professional standards and it is to those standards we will adhere.  It is recommended that you come to the first meeting having already picked a short monologue (2-3 minutes TOPS) from either the classical (Shakespeare is always a good place to start) or Contemporary repertoire.  We will meet as a group every other week over the course of two months during which time each candidate will also receive an hour of one-on-one coaching.


About John M Farrell


John M Farrell has had a long and distinguished career in the arts and in arts management.

Most recently he completed a year as Director in Residence with the O’Neill Foundation for Theater and Film in New York City and taught Script Interpretation and Theatre History for Actors at Brooklyn College under the auspices of their Adult Education program.

In Dublin he was Education Director for The Project Arts Centre and one of the original faculty at The Gaiety School of Acting.  He also gave classes at the now defunct Actors Centre prior to his moving to Waterford to manage The Garter Lane Arts Centre for several years.

He is proud to note that two of his former students went on to win highly prized Tony Awards for their work on Broadway, the late Murphy (The Beauty Queen of Leenane) and Brian O’Byrne for his work in Frozen.
