A creative challenge for teenagers.
For those aged 12 to 16 with a passion for performance and creative writing, OP is launching an opportunity to showcase your abilities with our online audiences.
Through a series of fortnightly masterclasses, members of the Monologue Jam will be guided by our practitioners through the development of writing and performing a monologue, with individual guidance on how to engage an audience through both voice, movement and character.
Monologue Jam members will submit a self-recorded performance which will be showcased proudly on the OP website at the end of the programme.
Schedule of Activity:
Tue 26 Jan – Live session on Zoom – 5pm to 7pm

Tue 16 & Tue 23 Mar – Members will take part in a one-to-one session to work on their final monologue with a member of the OP team via Zoom – 5pm to 7pm
