Students! You could perform on Seattle Rep's Leo K. stage and win an all-expenses paid trip to New York to perform on Broadway!

The August Wilson Monologue Competition features students performing monologues from the legendary playwright's Century Cycle of plays that document 100 years of the African American experience.

This competition is open to students from all backgrounds and ethnicities. 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 theater professionals right here at Seattle Rep.

We hold preliminaries in January and, if selected, you’ll perform in our finals in February. First and second place winners travel to New York to compete with finalists from Atlanta, Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Haven, New York, Pittsburgh, Portland, Dallas, 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!
