Chagrin Valley Little Theatre 10-10 Festival

web site

CVLT began the biennial 10-10 Festival in 2009, putting out the call for short plays to be performed at its River Street Playhouse, the smaller venue adjacent to the main theater building. Ten plays would be chosen, each lasting roughly ten minutes. The first 10-10 that July was a resounding success, receiving submissions from all over Northeast Ohio and beyond. The second and third editions were equally a hit. Now The 10-10 is back for its fourth edition!

Play Submission Guidelines

The play selection team is now accepting script submissions for consideration! If your submission is chosen, your play will be performed tentatively in July 2015, at the River Street Playhouse a "black box" environment which seats approximately 65 patrons.
