WHY SHOULD YOU SUBMIT?
We know that there are many times actors submit to auditions or contests like this and if they are not selected, they don't hear anything. Well, this is different! All submissions will receive personalized feedback regarding their submission. Feedback can include how to improve, if the actor made a good monologue selection, what the actor can do to improve, etc. It's a win-win! So why not!?
Each night, there will be a new group of contestants that will perfom LIVE in front our streaming online audience and an Industry Professional Guest Judge for that round. One (1) winner will be selected based on the highest tally of public votes and Two (2) winners will be selected by the Guest Judge. All 3 winners from each round will move onto the Grand Finale.
