Life-sized Meme looking for a full length script

web site

Life-sized Meme productions is looking for a full length script (60-90 mins) for an upcoming production in March at the Phoenix Theatre in Minneapolis MN that will be performed in a 5 show run over one week.  LSM is a production house that endeavors to:

  • Bring relevant ideas and discussions to the community through entertaining plays
  • Connect local theater artists with the twin cities community
  • Produce plays at minimal cost in order to keep the ticket prices low
  • Share profits with artists and empower local artists to confidently express their talent

With those goals in mind we want to find a new script that meets the following three criteria:

  • Script has never been performed in twin cities before.
  • The script can be a comedy, drama, tragedy, mystery or a combination. 
  • Script length should be between 60 and 90 mins

The following three criteria will make our script ideal, but we will definitely consider scripts without the following criteria as well:

  • Our ideal script would be an adaptation of a famous well known play with creative adaptive take on it. (Please ensure that the original one is a royalty free work so that the writer owns the rights to adapt and perform)
  • Our ideal script will be one that delivers a message around currently relevant topics.
  • Our ideal script will have a cast size of less than 10 cast members.

The chosen script will be provided with a contract for the production and will be compensated with a guaranteed amount of $75, two free tickets to the play (for one of the shows) and credit in the program. Scripts will be accepted from authors outside of the Twin Cities!!

Please send a PDF copy of your script to lifesizedmeme@gmail.com no later than November 24th at 5pm CST.

While submitting please mention to what extent you are open/able to work/discuss with the director on any minor changes to the script during its production process.
