Life-sized Meme productions seeks scripts for 2018 MN Fringe production

Facebook page

Life-sized Meme productions is looking for a script for our 2018 MN Fringe production, we will have 5 guaranteed show slots with the option of a 6th spot if we “win” the encore. 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 the Minneapolis/St Paul metro area before.
  • The script can be a comedy, drama, tragedy, mystery or a combination (sorry no musicals).
  • Script length should be between 45 and 55 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 a script with a good story that's relatable to the twin cities audience and will keep them engaged (at the edge of their seats) for its entire duration.
  • Our ideal script will be one that delivers a message around relevant topics.
  • Our ideal script will have emotions or situations which would present artistic challenges for our actors.
  • Our ideal script will have a cast size of 5 - 10 cast members.
The chosen script will be provided with a contract for the production and will be compensated with a guaranteed amount of $50, two free tickets to the play (for one of the shows) and credit in the program

Please send a PDF copy of your script to lifesizedmeme@gmail.com no later than April 24th 2018 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 it's production process. Please state the run length of the show in the body of the email.
