MonologueSlam Essex Winners!

MonologueSlam UK returned to Essex last night for a fantastic show at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester. The industry panel included Nathan Brine, the Associate Producer of the Mercury Theatre, Channel 4 Commissioning Executives Manpreet Dosanjh and Lisa Walters, agent Shane Collins of Shane Collins Associates and Rob Salmon, Associate Director or New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich. The show was hosted by the wonderful Dean Smith!

The line up on the night was strong with on point performances, beginning with an impressive Youth Round who made it tough for the judges! Vee Tames was the winner of this round, with a monologue by Peter Morris. Paul Bradley took the Special Mention with his monologue from Capstick Comes Home by Tony Capstick.

Up next were the 1 Minute Round where Annie Mwampulo, having recently returned home to Colchester after studying in London, was awarded a Special Mention for her performance from Marlowe’s Dr Faustus. Taking the trophy for this round was Winston Sarpong with a hilarious piece from D. M. Larson. In the heavy weight round, Jenny Mills won the trophy with a great performance of Who’s Afraid of the Working Class by Andrew Bovell, and Benjamin Powell earning the Special Mention with a Finn Kennedy piece.

The judges chose Winston to be the Overall Winner and he will be invited to compete in the National Final on December 12th.

The audience were entertained by the skills of singer and songwriter James Benardout and with the talents of DJ Kellz added to the mix, it was a fantastic night out in Colchester!

We will be back in Colchester next year and don’t forget that the London event is only a 40 minute train journey away in Stratford! Sign up to our mailing list so you find out straight away when auditions are announced for the show!

I found the Masterclass a great way to refresh my skills after having had a break from acting. Gary Pillai created a non competitive and relaxed atmosphere allowing us to show our true selves.

I adore all that TriForce are, do and represent. I feel exceptionally lucky for all that you've given me. I'm in a great place, with a new agent - Gordon and French - and my second TV job ahead. I honestly wouldn't be in this place without the support and opportunities given to me through The Actors Gym with the fabulous Babou, MonologueSlams and ongoing advice and guidance from the entireTriForce team. THANK YOU!

I’ve been to Monologue Slam twice and have been amazed by the level of talent I’ve seen. It’s a great evening and a chance to meet new actors. It’s led to actors coming to meet with us and even gaining roles in some of our projects. I can’t wait to go again.
