22 Nov

MonologueSlam is a nationwide industry showcase for actors from all backgrounds. Twenty actors are given the opportunity to perform for a welcoming audience and a panel of industry professionals who are in a position to move their careers forward. This event helps performers that may not have access to the usual routes into the industry and provides agents and casting directors with an avenue to source fresh talent.

The show consists of a youth round (performers aged between 11-17) 1 minute round and 3 minute round for actors aged 18+, where each actor will perform a monologue of their choice.

Winners from the regional events are invited to perform at the National Final in December at Theatre Royal Stratford East in London, for a chance to be crowned National Champion. The champion will take home an extensive prize package designed to take their career to the next level.

See what Coventry has to offer on 22 November at The Belgrade Theatre. Tickets are available to book now.

At TriForce, we’re committed to making our events accessible to everyone. MonologueSlam Coventry is held at The Belgrade Theatre which is an accessible venue. Find out more here. If you have any access requirements you’d like to discuss ahead of attending the show, simply email info@thetcn.com
