Hemel Hempstead actor Rhianna Thurgood has been selected for the World Monologue Games European Regional Finals, one of 14 global events featuring the best international competitors.
The 20-year-old actor from Hemel Hempstead submitted an entry to the World Monologue Games, a global event with competitors from over 80 countries competing for prizes and glory.
When Rhianna received an email announcing that she was one of only seven actors from the UK in her category that had made it to the European Regional Finals, she was over the moon.
She said: “I’m so excited to be competing for my country in this amazing event. It’s an honour to be selected.”
World Monologue Games is only in its first year but already attracted thousands of international performers.
Event founder Pete Malicki from Sydney, Australia said: “COVID19 has had a devastating effect on people’s lives, the global economy and many different industries including arts and entertainment.
“I wanted to create an opportunity for actors around the world to show how resilient they are. The response was massive – I’m not sure if this many actors have participated in one event before!”
Rhianna is currently training at the world-renowned Identity School of Acting in London and will be performing a piece from the play ‘Orphans’ by Dennis Kelly.
