Speech of the Week
Speech of the Week is a new interactive speech masterclass series designed for this moment. This series is for all ages and all experience levels… and it’s free!
Each speech has been carefully selected for its juicy words and rich imagery. Remember, these words are yours to enjoy and these characters are yours to play.
PART ONE: OBSERVE (Webinar)
The sessions begin with a text masterclass on Zoom, featuring a special guest actor and hosted by our Director of Education, Mary Hartman. You’ll get a closer look at a professional actor’s process and will find out their top tips and tricks for bringing the speech to life.
PART TWO: CONNECT (Working Session)
After the webinar, you’re invited to make the speech your own and share your discoveries in a follow-up working session later that week.
PART THREE: SHARE & ENJOY (Upload your video)
Finally, we encourage everyone to record and upload their performance of the speech. With permission, we’ll create a compilation video to share with the world!
Where: Online (Zoom webinar)
When: February 1 – April 1 from 5-6pm (Webinars on Mondays | Working Sessions on Thursdays)
