The FPCT Annual
Monologue SLAM!

January 7, 2023 @ 8pm


From the icy depths of the frozen heart of darkness that is winter in Baltimore, a spark of brilliance ignites the flame of passion that becomes the roiling inferno of theatrical performance that melts your face off and burns your britches till you cry “take me home momma, I have seen enough to know I have seen too much!”

Saturday, January 7, 2023 at 8pm, Fells Point Corner Theatre kicks the new year down the stairs, out the door and onto South Ann street for the battle that’ll rattle your saddle! The throw down that’s all about clowning around! The main event with the kinda gear that’ll strike fear into William Shakespeare! It’s THE ANNUAL MONOLOGUE SLAM!!!!

Join us for the rowdiest ONE-NIGHT-ONLY, WINNER-TAKE-ALL, OVERLY-HYPHENATED, Monologue slam competition! FPCT invites all comers who think they have what it takes to make our team of judges laugh, cry, or shake in our boots to step into the ring and give us the best you’ve got.. 

Each competitor has two minutes to WOW the judges with their high flying, rough riding, no holds barred theatrical skills. The winner walks away with $100 cold hard cash and the title of undisputed slam champion. Second and Third place will plot their revenge for next year as they step over the bodies of their fallen foes with $50 and $25 in their hands respectively. 


Whether you're mauling a Marlow, knocking down a Nottage, body checking a Chekov, slamming a Simon, or crafting your own original brew of beatdown, come show us what you’ve got in this knockdown drag out fight to the finish, that will never be matched… until next year.

Entry for this rumble is capped at a bruisin baker's dozen, so if you’re ready to sign up and take home the gold, fill out the form here:
