It’s that Atlanta energy, a vibe like none other that influences everything – from being the cradle of the Civil Rights Movement to the epicenter of southern hip-hop to home of the fiercest theatrical talent on the planet. Next NarrativeTM Monologue Competition (NNMC) is more than a competition. Atlanta’s best and brightest high school artists amplify creativity at the intersection of artistic excellence and civic engagement. For our 2023-24, season we’re leaning more into what it means to develop the whole student, not just the performer. And for Atlanta’s educators, NNMC is another resource to help support the emotional-social learning component of school systems’ curricula.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in 1 of 4 master classes that will enhance their acting skills and elevate these students as artists. These students will progress through three rounds of competition: preliminaries, semi-finals, and a regional final. The top two winners from the Atlanta regional competition will receive an all expense paid trip to New York City to compete against the winners of the other 12 regions.
