We are excited to announce the winner and our other finalists for the first-ever ‘Into The Spotlight’ competition!

We were completely overwhelmed by the response for our first round and the team here at Spotlight were blown away by the entries we received. The team watched every monologue performance and we genuinely struggled to narrow the entries down to a top 10.

The 10 finalist’s entries were sent to our special guest judges – the team at Sophie Holland Casting – and they have chosen the winner. We are delighted to announce that the winner of our first ever ‘Into the Spotlight’ monologue competition is Michelle Chantelle Hopewell.

Watch Michelle’s winning monologue performance:

Huge congratulations to Michelle and to our other wonderful finalists whose entries can be watched below:
