The Hart House U of T Drama Festival Monologue Competition is an annual event intended to provide all U of T students with a platform to share and promote their enthusiasm for creativity, storytelling and theatrical performance.

This competition is a fun performance opportunity for U of T students of all experience levels to increase accessibility and inclusivity in the campus arts community. The competition will provide incoming and current students with a chance to share their passion for performance while receiving recognition for the expression of talent and compete for fun and adjudicated awards.

From video submissions, our panel of judges will determine a shortlisted group of performers that will be showcased live and compete to be crowned the Monologue Competition Winners. 

This competition is a companion piece to the yearly Winter Term Hart House U of T Drama Festival which takes place on the historic Hart House Theatre Stage.

Costume Contest
