North Carolina Agricultural and Tecnical State University and Triad Stage are proud to partner to host North Carolina’s August Wilson Monologue Competition. Open to high school students, the program introduces the work of August Wilson to the next generation of artists, audiences, and leaders. Students choose one monologue from August Wilson’s Century Cycle between 1-3 minutes in length. Students will have the opportunity to practice their monologues in a number of community presentations and be coached by professional teaching artists.
Dates of the competition are still TBA. A panel of judges will choose two regional finalists to win and all-expense paid trip to New York City for the national finals weekend. The regional first, second, and third place winners will receive a $500, $250 and $100 scholarship respectively.
