The industry showcase for actors returns. Following a lengthy audition process, a selection of actors (including a youth section for 11-18 year olds), are given the opportunity to perform for a welcoming audience and a panel of industry professionals including agents, casting directors and directors.
An added element of competition raises the stakes for the chosen performers. The only industry showcase to be endorsed by casting directory Spotlight and Equity, MonologueSlam is renowned for offering a direct link between talent and the industry.
Come along and witness the most exciting new talent that Birmingham has to offer.
