Below you’ll find a sample of the resources and tasks that you’ll be asked to use and do throughout your time at KC. Kickstart your time at KC and take a look!

There are so many resources out there that we couldn’t narrow them down, so we had a chat with Nigel Holman, who is one of our expert tutors in this area and he has this advice for prepping ready for September:-

  • WATCH AS MANY FILMS AS YOU CAN. And make sure that they’re from a variety of genres. This gives an awareness of narrative structure and how actors deliver a rang  of emotions. Also, it is important to have favourite actors to guide your inspiration and use as a template for your journey as an actor.
  • Check out MASTER CLASS This is a subscription service but it doesn’t get much better. 
  • READ PLAYS. JUST READ A LOT OF PLAYS. LOTS. KEEP READING THEM. THEN READ MORE.

Over the duration of the summer, try and learn as many monologues from the plays you’ve been researching as you possibly can. And remember not to always pick your favourite character, try experimenting, push yourself and get practicing!
