Panida Theater to host monologue competition

August 1, 2022

The Panida Theater is excited to announce a monologue competition where contestants will compete for cash prizes! “This is a great event for all sorts of people in our community,” said managing director Veronica Knowlton. “It’s perfect for anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to participate in local theater and would like to introduce themselves. For those who once participated in local productions, it’s a fun way to make a comeback! We are inviting representatives of theater production companies, plus local directors and producers to attend.”

Since this is the first event in the Little Theater since its recent facelift, the audience and participants will get their first look at the positive changes coming to the Panida.

“We are hoping to fundraise $2,000 to cover the costs of new paint, a brand-new floor, and lighting,” Veronica said. “I’m excited at the opportunity to begin to showcase the Panida Little Theater and host more intimate events! Our community is thirsty for a smaller venue, so to present Mono-Mania and future smaller productions will be wonderful for both the Panida Theater and for Sandpoint.”

Participants are encouraged to sign up for Mono-Mania and reserve their monologue space online at panida.org. They may write their own monologue, use Shakespearian verse or choose a piece from the many online monologue sites.

Mono-Mania takes place at 7 p.m. Saturday, August 13, in the Panida Little Theater. Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door. Seating is limited so plan to get your tickets in advance.
