Studio Players seek 10-minute plays

web site

Studio Players, Kentuckys Oldest Community-Involved Theater, located in Lexington, KY, is proud to announce a 10-Minute Play Festival, to be performed in August 2014. We are looking for 7 strong, entertaining plays to feature. As such, we are going to hold a competition.

This competition is for 10-minute plays only; it is open to any playwright. This year, the judges will be members of the Studio Players theater community: board members, directors and patrons. The rules are simple and are as follows:

1. Any playwright may enter; only one script per playwright.

2. The play must be a 10 minute play (meaning it will be approximately 10 pages long).

3. All plays should be emailed with a separate cover page with plays title, authors name, email address and phone number. The play itself should only have the title; no identifying information contained in or on the 10 page script.

4. All plays must be received by May 10th.
5. The contest is open to the first 150 entries received.
6. Winning entrants agree to a full production of their scripts.

Thats it! The top 7 scripts (as determined by the judges) will be performed by active members of the Bluegrass theater community. Each play will be fully realized, staged productions; each performance showing all winning scripts. The 7 Selected playwrights will each receive $100 in prize money.

All entries should be sent to: sweftdart@yahoo.com with 10-min play fest in the header.
