PRELIMINARY ROUND:

FINALS:

Friday May 1 at 9 pm 


Best performer wins a $300 cash prize!


This is a performer monologue competition where actors compete to win a $300 cash prize.

All monologues must be 4 minutes or less, with no set or a very simple set.

(1 chairs, and a stool will be available if needed).

Also, there can be no internal sound cues in your monologue.  It needs to be totally actor self-contained.  

(No phone calls cues etc etc.)

YOU CAN PERFORM ANY MONOLOGUE YOU LIKE AS LONG AS IT IS UNDER 4 MINUTES.

NON-EQUITY ONLY.


HOW THE VOTING WILL WORK

For the preliminary round on April 17, there will be a minimum of 25 performers presenting their monologues. The Audience will be given a ballot and they will rate the THREE BEST performers from 3 to 1.  3 is the VERY BEST, 2 is SECOND BEST, and 1 is THIRD BEST.

After the performance on April 17, we will add up the points and the 1/3 of the performers will be cut from the competition (1/3 of the participants with the lowest scores will be cut. We will round up adding another if the number does not exactly split in thirds.) The remaining highest scoring performers will return on Friday May 1 for 1 performances at 9 pm. The one performer with the highest points that night after the Finals performance on  May 1, will win the $300 cash prize.  A check for $300 will be awarded that night.

The voting is all crowd sourced so that it is fair to all. The performer with the most friends will not necessarily win because of the graduated voting from 3 to 1 for the top three performers.  (And there is no "panel of experts" voting for their friends.)

Each actor will receive 1 performance, and 1 more if they move on to the Finals.


ALL PERFORMERS MUST BE AVAILABLE for the dates and times below.

(No exceptions if you are going to participate.)
