Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres


With huge apologies to everyone involved with this competition.  We realise that in the final couple of weeks when we should have been reminding everyone of the approaching deadlines by social media and other publicity channels, we found ourselves completely spirited away in the spectacle of Jesus Christ Superstar.

The deadline for Voices of Todmorden came and went with very little fanfare and we have subsequently learned that several people missed it. So, it has been decided to extend the deadline by 3 weeks to allow everyone to finish off their monologues and allow us to promote the deadline a bit more efficiently.  Hopefully this will help both you and us and we look forward to a great evening of shortlisted entries again this Autumn. 

This time the theme is ‘Journey’. The entries must be monologues and be based in or strongly involve Todmorden. The theme may be interpreted anyway that the author wishes. The competition is now live and full entry conditions can be downloaded below. Closing date for entries is the 30th June 2018. Spread the word, get creative and GOOD LUCK!

All entries will be judged anonymously by our panel of independent judges and the shortlisted entrants will be performed at the Hippodrome Theatre on the weekend of 28th & 29th September 2018
