Calling all middle school student actors!  The METG invites any Massachusetts student in grades 5 – 9 to enter the new Monologue Contest this year.

The rules are simple:

Contest Guidelines:

1. Students may perform one piece that is one to two minutes in length.

2. Monologues must come from a previously-published PLAY. Monologues from movies, books, speeches, short stories, poetry and all other literary forms are not permitted.

3. Monologue choice must be approved by the applicant’s drama teacher/advisor.

4. No live or recorded accompaniment or sound effects are allowed.

5. Before each audition, the contestant will be allowed to set the stage; one straight‐backed chair and one small table will be provided.  No additional set pieces will be permitted.  

6. Costumes and props are NOT permitted.  Contestants should wear simple clothing that allows for ease of movement.  No special lighting will be available.  

7. Performances will be evaluated by two adjudicators independently using the METG Monologue Contest rubric.

Students with the highest scores will be recognized at an Awards Ceremony in the Spring and the student with the highest score will receive a cash prize.
