Join Yvonne Paretzky for a workshop all about monologue coaching. You'll perform the piece for the class, get feedback and time allowing, perform again. Memorization is recommended, but not necessary.
Yvonne Paretzky is a classically trained actor with more than 15 years' experience. Just before COVID closed theaters, she concluded a 55-performance run of Amadeus by Peter Shaffer. Prior to that Yvonne's stage roles included Katherine Brandt in 33 Variations by Moisés Kaufman, The Ghost in Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge by Christopher Durang, and Addie in The Little Foxes by Lilian Hellman. Since 2020, she has done several on-line film productions, including Coronaville, a dark comedy mini-series now in post-production and for which she created and wrote the episode in which she stars as the widow looking for love in all the wrong places. While she laughed the most on set as the spokesperson for Lume natural deodorant (yes, it works!), working with Nancy Robinette and Jessica Bauman on Maud was the most satisfying engagement of Yvonne's acting career.
Yvonne completed the three-year program at The Studio Acting Conservatory while performing in stage, tv, and short adaptations of Euripides' Medea and the Bard's Titus Andronicus, and other productions. Yvonne continues to study on-camera acting with Martin Blank, Adrienne Nelson, and Joseph Pearlman, dialects with Zach Campion, and Shakespeare with Mary Lincer. Yvonne also is working on a feature film screenplay, has joined an on-line book club started by Eugene Simon of Game of Thrones, and directed a play, The Trip by Crystal V. Rhodes. Recently Yvonne was nominated for Best Supporting Actress by The World and Independent Film Festival for her role in It's Still Not About Me written and directed by Debbie Camper.
After she gets her shots, she's visiting her grandchildren (and their parents), continuing to look for ways to save the planet for them and everyone else, making soup for the homeless with the KindSoup crew, and trying to follow her life mantra: Do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly.
