Are you nailing your auditions, but flunking the sides?

Or maybe you just want to get back to (acting) basics, so you don’t feel like a #basic actor?



  • MONOLOGUES, COLD READS, AND SIDES will give students an opportunity to work one on one with Broadway Vet, KIRSTEN WYATT, on book material.

  • Students will be allowed to bring in and workshop monologues and sides they have been given for an upcoming audition, material they have been given in the past they want to work on and improve, or would LIKE to receive one day.

  • This offers students a wonderful opportunity to work on their dream roles and get a head start before getting into that audition room!

  • Cold Reads? What’s that? Bring in something NEW! Work through it from scratch with Kirsten, or even ask Kirsten to bring in material FOR you to read on the spot in class!

  • As always, this class can be as much the student’s design as they wish! Or they’ll be able to ask for a little extra guidance and direction from our faculty.

  • There's no audition for this class!


For all students, new and returning to AT , MONOLOGUES, COLD READS, AND SIDES costs $300 including a $99 deposit! Pay the deposit to reserve your spot and pay the balance due on the first day!
