  • American College Theatre Festival — Irene Ryan Competition

    Students do not need to apply for permission to present monologues as audition pieces in the American College Theatre Festival’s Irene Ryan Competition. You may perform monologues from any of our plays, except the works of Samuel Beckett and Edward Albee, without written permission or paying a royalty fee. Only if a student progresses to the final round, where the monologues are presented at the Kennedy Center, do you need to apply for and receive written permission to perform the piece. Do not send us an application for the earlier rounds of the competition. If you have further questions go to The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival site and contact the representative in your district.
