This guide is designed to help you jump start your theater research, find a monologue, locate a review, design a costume or light the stage!
For spring semester 2020, we are trialing the Drama Online database from Bloomsbury Publishing. In addition to videos and play scripts (leaning heavily toward Shakespeare, but also from the L.A. Theatre Works Collection), there is a ‘monologue search feature,’ a how-to video is here.
Here are some examples of the many Lindell Library books that contain monologues. Search our collection for more, or browse the stacks.
Use the call numbers on these books to locate additional monologues nearby in the stacks.
The PN2080 section on the Lower Level is a good place to start.
This revolutionary eight-part teaching series totally changes how students look at the acting strategies that were pioneered by world-renowned Russian actor and theater director Constantin Stanislavsky. Coaching from Hollywood acting teacher and director Timothy Craig will help students employ helpful acting techniques. Students will embrace and project Stanislavsky’s theories from their inner selves as they observe, react, and immediately apply them to their acting, directing, and writing. 8-part series, 9–20 minutes each.
