The Singapore Monologue Slam (SMS) returns for its second edition in September. Being Singapore’s first monologue competition when it hits the town last year, this edition of SMS will feature a value of more than $30,000 in prizes!

The competition is open to all 13 to 35 years old residing in Singapore. Organised by Method Productions, the organisers hope that through SMS, it will provide opportunities for local young actors and writers to showcase their skills in front of a live audience and a jury panel from the film and theatre industry, hence promoting creativity.

For a registration fee of S$30, participants are entitled to personalised consultations and masterclasses – conducted by the acting coach and director from Haque Centre of Acting & Creativity (HCAC), Kamil Haque. Kamil  These pre-competition events held at HCAC will gear participants up with the necessary skills and, needless to say, confidence to perform their very best work when the competition starts on 21 September.

The SMS is our way of empowering young people to express themselves and pursue their creative dreams.

REACHING OUT TO THE COMMUNITY
As part of the newly thought out initiatives, the finalists of this year’s competition will have a chance to take their monologues on tour in different venues across the country. That means, you will have the chance to showcase your talents to the rest of Singapore! You might be the next Lim Kay Tong, Selina Tan or Adrian Pang and be the next shining star of the theatre scene.
