MITF: Summer Is Still Accepting Short Subjects

web site

Production Dates July 16 - August 7, 2016

Dear Friend in the Theatre,

MITF: Summer has extended the submission deadline for short plays and musicals to June 27

MITF: Summer is taking place at the WorkShop Theater's Main Stage and Jewel Box Theaters, 312 W. 36th Street, in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Details are straightforward:
Dates for the Festival are July 16-August 7, 2016.
We're looking for any kind of short play or musical that fits the guidelines:
* 30 - 60 min. long.
* Easy to produce in a no-frills festival.
* Any genre.
* Both union and non-union plays will be considered.
Scripts with guns as props will not be accepted.
Plays must be sent in Word Document or PDF File. Pages MUST be numbered and script must be in standard playscript format.* Please also include the running time.
Short plays and musicals receive 3 performances, all in the same week (July 24, July 25, and July 26).
Producers have an option to receive a share of the profits, if any.**
There will be a tech rehearsal running 2 times the running time of your show.
The Festival provides the venue (the WorkShop Theater's Main Stage and Jewel Box Theaters), shared scenery (rehearsal cubes, a table, and 4 chairs), front-of-house staff, and a board op (NOT a lighting designer). The rest is up to you! You are 100% responsible for your own production. Shows must be fully produced (off book!).
To submit a project, mark it clearly "MITF: Summer," and let us know if it is a short play or musical. We'll curate the entries as they come in, so you can start working on them as soon as possible. Send your script soon. The deadline is fast approaching!We look forward to your submissions!

Extended Submission Deadline For Short Subjects is June 27, 2016.
*12 pt Times Roman; character names in the middle on their own line; line spaces between speeches and stage directions; indented stage directions; 1" margins all around.
