Learn more about the August Wilson Monologue Competition
and how students can participate.

Register now for a chance to perform on Seattle Repertory Theatre’s Leo K. stage and win an all-expenses paid trip to New York to perform on Broadway! The August Wilson Monologue Competition will introduce you to August Wilson’s Century Cycle, documenting 100 years of the African American experience. This competition is open to students from all backgrounds and ethnicities. Fill out the online form and you will receive an email confirmation with all the information you’ll need to compete. We’ll help you select a monologue from one of the plays from the Century Cycle and you’ll have access to free coaching sessions with theatre professionals right here at Seattle Rep.

We hold preliminaries in February and, if selected, you’ll perform in our finals in March. First and second place winners travel to New York to compete with finalists from Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Portland, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, and Greensboro. You will also have the opportunity to see Broadway shows and participate in a workshop with True Colors Theatre Company’s Tony Award-winning Artistic Director Kenny Leon!
