PYB Student to Perform in Monologue Competition

Gielle (pictured above), a student at PYB, was selected as one of 17 semi-finalists to compete in Portland's Regional Finals for the August Wilson Monologue Competition (AWMC) on Monday, March 2, 2015, at Portland Center Stage. 

Gielle was also honored to be working with Russell Hornsby - known for his role as Detective Hank Griffin in the hit TV show Grimm - who has been a special guest teaching artist for the AWMC by personally coaching each semi-finalist with their chosen monologue. Hornsby will also Emcee the AWMC.

The top three Portland Regional Finalists from the AWMC will receive an all expenses paid trip to compete in the National August Wilson Monologue Competition on Broadway in New York City, in May 2015.
