Top L.A. Talent Manager Mitchell Gossett’s Monologue Masterclasses

Nex Gen Studios, 519 8th Ave, 12th Floor
New York, NY 10018 United States
July 10 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm EDT

No Audition Required | Ages 7-Adults, 2 Sessions Grouped by Age | Saturday, July 10 | Cost 205.00

Work with powerhouse L.A. Talent Manager Mitchell Gossett of Industry Entertainment Partners in his famous Monologue Masterclass! Mitchell's storied success has allowed him to refer talent to agencies in NY, L.A. and across the USA.

Mitchell believes the most exciting way to explore material is not through thoughts alone, but through “ACTIONS” – through what you are DOING with your body. Bring ACTions into the work creates a stronger, more visceral connection to the material. But as importantly, it also provides a means of showing the most unique feature any actor can present: THEMSELVES in the work. Students will receive monologues in advance of class and Mitchell will offer direction and coaching to lucky participants!

Focus of Class:
• Learn Mitchell Gossett’s ‘ACTions’ Approach to Delivering a Memorable Performance
• Perform a Monologue for Mitchell Gossett
• Receive Insightful Coaching and Feedback from Mitchell Gossett
• Perform a Mock Audition for Mr. Gossett
• Walk Away with a Personalized Feedback Form
• Q&A Open to his Students and Parents of Minor Students (if time permits!)

Throughout his career as a manager and agent, Mitchell has represented and discovered many noteworthy actors, including Jennifer Lawrence (THE HUNGER GAMES, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK), Rachel Brosnahan (THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL), Darren Criss (AMERICAN CRIME STORY, GLEE), Zendaya (THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, EUPHORIA), Kristen Bell (FROZEN 1 & 2, THE GOOD PLACE), Brandon Victor Dixon (HAMILTON, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR), Dylan Minnette (13 REASONS WHY), Kiernan Shipka (THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SERENA, MAD MEN), Jojo Siwa (DANCE MOMS, THE J TEAM), Miley Cyrus (THE LAST SONG, HANNAH MONTANA), Lucy Hale (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) and many, many others.
