Join us as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Shakespeare Monologue & Scene contest. From 75 contestants the first year to over 1,200 participants this past season, the Shakespeare contest has become a much anticipated annual event.
This is a wonderful opportunity for young people to experience the excitement of live performance while learning the works of William Shakespeare. The contest is open to students in grades 4-12. Students may enter the monologue, scene or both portions of the contest in either the upper division (grades 8-12) or the lower devision (grades 4-7).
Coaching sessions are conducted in January and February in the schools and at the O'Reilly Theater. Contestants present their pieces on the Public's main stage in front of a panel of judges, and those who advance to the final round of the contest have the opportunity to perform at the Showcase of Finalists.
