Every year, HFTco with support from the ALERT Team presents the annual Hamilton Monologue Slam, a fundraising event for Artist Development programs.
The Monologue Slam is back on Sunday, March 26th, 2023 at 7:30pm at the Casbah Lounge (306 King St. W., Hamilton). Note: Audience entrance via patio on Queen Street South, look for the sign! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to compete in front of a jury of theatre professionals, perform in front of a live audience, and vie for the chance to win the title of Monologue Slam Champion. All proceeds from the Monologue Slam will support HFTco’s education and outreach initiatives, including the ALERT professional development program.
If chosen, each contestant will receive feedback on their monologues from the panelists and compete for the chance to become one of three finalists. You may even be crowned Hamilton’s 2023 Monologue Slam Champion!
Venue Access Notes: 1 step up to patio level to enter the building, removable ramp available, 0 steps/stairs once inside the building; wheelchair accessible seating; wheelchair accessible washroom; gender neutral washroom; no changing table available. Visit: https://casbahlounge.ca/
A night of live theatre, including some insights into the magic of performing. Ever wonder how an actor adjusts to feedback, what it means to work with a director, what it must feel like to perform in front of a live audience? Come watch Hamilton’s finest emerging and established actors tackle it all in this year’s Monologue Slam!
This event is open to all ages, although the monologues may contain adult content. RSVP to confirm attendance in advance to email@example.com. Tickets are $15 at the door!
On the night of the event, there will be two rounds of performances. In round one, selected performers will perform an existing, published monologue of their choice they have rehearsed independently, and receive feedback from the professional panelists.
The panel will select three performers to advance to round two, where performers will have an opportunity to incorporate their feedback and perform their monologues again.
Audience members then vote to decide which of the final three performers will be crowned Hamilton’s 2023 Monologue Slam Champion!
ALL applicants to the Monologue SLAM will be granted FREE ENTRY to the evening’s event (if you complete the application form online and submit the $10 application fee, you will be added to the guest list, regardless of if you are performing or not).
Funding for ALERT would not be possible without generous support from the incite Foundation for the Arts and Alfred and Joan Robertshaw Memorial Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation. The views and opinions expressed in this website do not necessarily reflect those of Hamilton Community Foundation.
