Monroe's English Speaking Union hosts annual event
The Monroe branch of the English Speaking Union will hold its annual Shakespeare Contest for area high school thespians on Sunday, Feb. 24.
The contest begins at 3 p.m. and will be held at First United Methodist Church, 3900 Loop Road, Monroe.
Students in grades 10-12 from nine area schools will compete. The actors have already been judged at their respective schools for the competition. Participants will recite a 20-line monologue from a Shakespeare play and a 14-line Shakespeare sonnet.
In addition to the competitive presentations, the Young Stage Group of Monroe's Little Theatre will perform.
Judges for the event are Dennis Gleason, director of the Monroe Little Theatre; Larue Sloan, English professor at the University of Louisiana at Monroe; and C. Turner Steckline, Department of Communication at ULM.
Others assisting in the program are Sue Brooks, promptor; Joan Chardkoff, mistress of ceremonies; and Jean Huenefeld, secretary of ESU.
The winner of the Monroe competition will receive an expenses-paid trip to New York to participate in the 25th national competition, sponsored by the English Speaking Union. That event is from April 26-28.
While in New York, the Monroe winner will join 59 others for a workshop at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. The winner of the national competition, to be held at Radio City Music Hall, will win a full scholarship in drama to Oxford University.
Participating schools include Cedar Creek School of Ruston; the Louisiana School for Math, Science and Arts in Natchitoches; Riverfield Academy of Rayville; and Neville High, Ouachita Christian, Ouachita Parish High, West Ouachita High and West Monroe High schools.
The Monroe event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
