MonologuesSlam UK

We run a nationwide competition for actors called MonologueSlam UK, which will be coming to Northern Stage on 07 June 2019.

MonologueSlam is a competitive showcase for actors, with a youth round for 11-17 year olds, and an adult round for 18+ performers (there is no upper age limit). The show is a fun night out, with actors performing monologues in front of a welcoming public audience and an industry judging panel. Our confirmed judges for our Newcastle event so far are Lorne Campbell, Artistic Director of Northern Stage, and agent Janet Plater. We will be confirming 2 further judges before the show.

Our youth round consists of 5 young performers aged 11-17 performing one minute monologues. These performers are selected from an audition (which takes place at Northern Stage on Friday 26 April between 5-7pm), where they come with a 1 minute monologue prepared and perform it as part of a workshop audition. We then select our 5 performers for the show. You can see all the information about the auditions and how to apply here:

We are also looking to audition 18+ performers for the adult rounds. Those auditions are on Saturday 27 April at Northern Stage and you can find all the info and how to apply here:  We select 15 performers from the auditions to take part in the show.

We would love to see some of your members attend the audition. It is completely free to audition and take part in the show, there is no charge.
