Beginners Acting – The Monologue (Level 1)

Darlo Drama’s Level One beginners acting course runs one night a week over eight weeks followed by a weekend evening performance to family and friends in our Studio Theatre.

The course starts gently, allowing a safe place for everyone to play and explore with fun acting and drama games, trust exercises and improvisation. By the second week the group begins to get much more comfortable with each other, more relaxed and spontaneous.

In week three a monologue is chosen for you from our library and the focus of the course shifts to working with the script, developing character, voice projection and taking direction. This allows you to really get “under the skin” of the character and apply your newly found confidence and creative impulses to a monologue.

Then you perform…it sounds daunting we know – but trust us! We are with you every step of the way. You can invite your family and friends to join in celebrating your achievements. Our performances are a great environment and there is nothing like the buzz of the audience’s applause.

Creativity, Voice & Movement, Ensemble Work, Improvisation, Imagination & Performance, Developing Performance Confidence & Script Work.

At the conclusion of the course you will perform a monologue taken from a modern play to an audience of family, friends & fellow students on our Studio Theatre stage.

Course testimonials:

  • An excellent introduction into acting for beginners. Nerves settle quickly as the course / director gets everyone to feel at ease, even while pushing you out of your comfort zone. A great group of supportive, like minded individuals and a very helpful director made this course a joy to be part of. Highly recommended.
  • Thank you Amanda for the most wonderful experience. I'd been told I'd be in good hands at Darlo Drama but the course exceeded all my expectations in spades. Amanda created such a safe space in which to learn how to be fully present with others, and it was amazing to see how much this laid the foundations for everyone in the class to discover new things about ourselves and really thrive. I expected to step out of my comfort zone and learn some new skills but never could have anticipated what a positive effect the course would have on my mental health. Can't wait for level 2 to start!
  • It was such a fun course that was a challenge at the same time. Deborah was so good at making people feel comfortable to try anything!
