Presented by Kevin Rich

Are you interested in learning more about Shakespeare? As you look into programs, internships and summer work, you'll find many auditions require a classical monologue. CU Boulder faculty member Kevin Rich has worked as a Shakespearean actor and director for over a decade, and served as Artistic Director of the Illinois Shakespeare Festival from 2012-2017. Having seen thousands of Shakespeare auditions in that time, he'll share some thoughts about choosing the right piece, some suggestions of plays and monologues for your age range, and guidance for unlocking the power of Shakespeare's language. As time permits, Kevin will also offer feedback for those of you who already have a Shakespeare monologue memorized and would like to perform it!
