Studio Players, Kentucky’s oldest community-involved theatre, located in Lexington, has announced their 4th annual 10-Minute Play Festival, to be performed in August 2017. Winning entrants will get a full production of their scripts and video recording and presentation of their scripts.
Studio players says: “This event is growing yearly, with vibrant public response. This year, we have both a corporate sponsor as well as a generous private donor. As such, we are solid and building.
“We are looking for 7 strong plays which change lives to feature so, once again, we are holding a competition.”
The competition is open to any playwright. The judges will be members of the Studio Players theater community: board members, directors and patrons.
The contest is open to the first 150 entries received. The top 7 scripts (as determined by the judges) will be performed by active members of the Bluegrass theater community.
Each play will be a fully realised, staged production; each performance showing all winning scripts. The 7 Selected playwrights will each receive $200 in prize money.
What to submit:
- 10-minute plays only
- Only one script per playwright
How to apply:
- All plays should be emailed, with a separate cover page, with: play’s title, author’s name, email address, mailing address and phone number. The play itself should only have the title; no identifying information contained in or on the 10 page script.
- All entries should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org with “10-min play fest” in the header.
