About our Instructor:  Kevin Ibbotson (he/him) trained for four years with Bull Alley Theatre in Dublin. He has worked as an actor, director, and teacher in Ireland, Australia, and Canada. Most recently, he appeared as the Emcee in Pivot Theatre’s production of My Blue Heaven.  While training, Kevin found great value in Bull Alley’s monologue class, which worked to provide each student with a professionally-directed audition piece in multiple theatre styles. It taught him not only the monologues, but also the value that working in a supportive atmosphere and group-work style can provide actors, along with opportunities to provide and receive constructive feedback. This approach not only built his confidence as an actor, but also prompted his interest in becoming a director and an instructor.   Preparing for an Audition – Monologue Mastery  Whether Greek, Roman, Shakespeare, or contemporary, actors should have a repertoire of monologues at the ready. While monologues can be learned in isolation, feedback and direction will help elevate your monologue to the next level. Kevin’s approach works in a collaborative setting while teaching actors how to properly critique a performance, and how to think about performance from a mechanical rather than emotional point of view.
