MonologueSlam London October Winners!

Last night saw the penultimate London show of the year at Theatre Royal Stratford East. It was great to be back in the building with some amazing talent on stage!

We had a total of 23 actors taking to the stage. Judging the performances were agents Wendy Scozzaro from Felix de Wolfe, Marvin Godfrey from Gavin Barker Associates and Clive Marcus from Marcus and McCrimmon. They were joined by casting directors Sue Needleman and Carl Proctor. 

The Winners:

From left to right, Lauryn Ajufo (Youth Round), Emma Naomi (1 Minute Round) and Lauren Moakes (3 Minute Round).

 

We started of course with the Youth Round – some amazingly talented 11-17 year olds, several of whom are members of the Theatre Royal Stratford East Youth Theatre. Our Youth Round winner with Lauryn Ajufo, with a monologue from “For Colored Girls who have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf” by Ntozake Shange. Lauren was our Youth Round defending champion from the July show, so she’s managed to hang onto her MonologueSlam crown! It was definitely a night of triumph for female performers, with the 1 Minute and 3 Minute Rounds also being won by women. Emma Naomi took home the 1 Minute Round prize, with “Low Dat” by Jess Walters, and in the 3 Minute Round the winner was Lauren Moakes with “It Kind of Looks Like a Doughnut” by Holly Boyden. Our 1 Minute Round winner Emma Naomi was then selected as the Overall Winner, and will go through to the National Final in December.

Congratulations to all of you!

Special mentions:

The judges awarded Special Mention to one performer in each round. Congratulations to our stand out stars below! Madelyn was selected to perform at the Slam from the MonologueSlam Masterclass, just a couple of days before the Slam!

We’d also like to say well done to Finella Waddilove, who put her name in for the Golden Ticket competition and was selected by our host Chizzy Akudolu to come up on stage and perform a monologue. She came to support Mountview classmates Abby Dunlavy and Nicola Azzopardi and ended up on stage herself!

We were treated to comedy from our resident improv group Shoot From The Hip as well as music from our special guest Cherri V – such a fantastic show!

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.
