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, where each actor will perform a monologue of their choice.

See what Manchester has to offer on 26 October at 53two.

At TriForce, we’re committed to making our events accessible to everyone. MonologueSlam Manchester is held at 53two which is a wheelchair accessible venue. 
If you have any access requirements you’d like to discuss ahead of attending the show, simply email info@thetcn.com
