Local girl in global games
Anouk Roeloffse is regional finalist selected in the World Monologue Games.

Theatres and film sets around the world are closed for business, but this didn’t stop Anouk Roeloffse’s passion for performing.

The 12-year-old from Laerskool Stellenbosch was selected for the World Monologue Games Regional Finals, one of 14 global events featuring the best international competitors.

The young actor submitted an entry to World Monologue Games, a global event with competitors from over 80 countries vying for prizes and glory. She’s also one of the youngest performers in her category, which is between the ages of 12 and 17.

When Anouk received an email announcing she had made it to the regional finals she was over the moon. “I’m so excited to be competing for my country in this amazing event,” she said. “It’s an honour to be selected.”

World Monologue Games is only in its first year, but it already has attracted thousands of international performers. Event founder Pete Malicki from Sydney, Australia says: “Covid-19 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!”

Anouk will perform a piece entitled See Me, where she plays the character of Alina, who speaks to her cat, Rosie, after multiple rejections from drama school, because she doesn’t have anyone else that she can open up to. “I really love performing this piece,” she said.

The regional finals will be live-streamed on Saturday 19 September at 10:30.
