About The Class:

Hi! My name is Toby Jacob and I'm a current Junior in Piedmont California. I have 9 years of musical theater experience, and have 4 years of Shakespeare experience. I love public speaking and the performing arts. In my spare time, I work as a ski coach, spend time with friends, read, and write for a small magazine.

In this four week class, we will spend each class going over a different aspect of preforming spoken works, while also exploring the different kinds of spoken art, such as monologues, and poetry. We will cover annunciation, word placement, posture, and presentation. Each class will consist of examples, demonstrations, exercises, and group work. This class will help prepare you for auditions, class presentations, and theatrical public speaking.

Required Materials:
