The St. Louis Writers' Group presents End of the Year Party and Monologue Event on Monday, December 17 at 6:30 pm. " No booking required. Just bring an original monologue that is 90 seconds to five minutes long. Audience members and actors are always welcome too. Prepare to read it yourself, have an actor friend read it for you or one of the regulars can read it. The only very loose guideline is that your monologue should somehow be related to the winter/holiday season. It can be serious, funny, dramatic, tragic or just plain weird. Following last year's successful event we're hoping for an equally enjoyable evening. The emphasis is on fun before the group breaks for the winter." The event takes place upstairs at Big Daddy's, 1000 Sidney in Soulard. For more information: www.stlwritersgroup.com.
