We’re rapidly taking over the country! TriForce are very pleased to announce that MonologueSlam UK is launching at West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds this spring!
The first show will be on Friday 10th April, with auditions on Saturday 7th March for adult performers and Friday 6th March for the Youth Round performers. Our Youth Round in Leeds will be for 11-19 year olds, and those over 19 need to apply for the adult round.
We’ve already confirmed some amazing judges – Kay Magson, Casting Director extraordinaire will be on the panel, alongside Associate Director at the West Yorkshire Playhouse Mark Rosenblatt, as well as Casting Director and Principal of Northern Drama Acting School, Jo Adamson-Parker. We’ll be announcing further judges closer to the date.
As always, this is a FREE opportunity for actors to do their thing in front of those in the industry with the power to move their careers forward. We make sure we showcase the best of local talent to our industry movers and shakers by auditioning over 120 actors for 20 spots. We’ll also be running our acclaimed Masterclass before the show on the 28th March, where actors will be put through their paces with their chosen monologue by LIPA tutor Laura Carroll. Two performers will also be selected from the Masterclass to take part in the show.
This event is THE industry showcase for actors, supported by renowned casting directory Spotlight, and offering the winner the chance to take part in the national final at Theatre Royal Stratford East in December 2015, where a year’s subscription to Spotlight will be up for grabs!
