SEEKING ONE ACT TO BE PRODUCED AT MN FRINGE

No web site available

Colfax Theater is looking for a play for the 2014 MN Fringe Festival.

Posting is for a play between the times of 45-60 mins
Ages 8-70 Comedy, Dark Comedy, Politically Charged, Drama
3-10 actors in the show, any race, gender, sexual preference...it doesn't matter

What does matter...the writing! The Process! The Cast! and The Team to make it happen!!!!!!

We are  Colfax Theatre, we have been around for about 5 years. During the school year we produce classical children's theatre in south Minneapolis, but the summer is when we delve into more serious thought provoking work.

The last two years we have produced successful productions at the MN Fringe Festival, we are hoping we do it again this year.

2013 we did a dramatic comedy about standardized testing in the school system as a parody to Mamet's classic Glengarry Glen Ross, with 13 year old girls talking like Chicago Business-Man. We posted great numbers in attendance, somewhere between the top 15th most attended show.

2012 we produced a show called Nevermind 1940's Rosie the Riveters living in a society and trying to survive the day...a great dramatic piece. CBS online named us one of the top "Hometown Teams" to see.  And we were the 8th most attended show in the fringe.

So we are taking submissions until March 10th, please keep it to under two plays per person.

I just want to be clear, we are not in the Fringe yet, but we hope to be, and if our number is called during the lottery process, we will produce a show this year in 2014 MN Fringe Festival.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to read every submission.
