Aloha Theatre has announced its request for new stage plays which have not been published or produced, for its 25th annual Original Play Festival, which will be presented August 15-18, 2018, at the historic, 1932 vintage theatre in Kainaliu, in the district of Kona on the “Big Island” of Hawaii.
Scripts of any length and on any subject will be accepted, and must be received by May 1, 2018.
Due to the limited preparation time for the festival, musical entries will not be accepted. Also ineligible are scripts which have won contests or which have already received staged readings.
Entries are limited to one per playwright and must be submitted electronically in Word or PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The script file must contain a list of characters and a brief description of the play, but should not contain the playwright’s name. A separate file must also be submitted and must include the title of the play and the playwright’s name, mailing address, phone numbers, and email address. This helps to insure anonymity in evaluation and selection. Authors retain rights; Aloha Theatre performance rights are limited to the dates of the festival. Scripts will be posted on a special, secure section of the theatre’s website during the selection process to facilitate access by the OPF XXV Selection Committee. Entries must be received by May 1, 2018.
Plays selected will be mounted as staged readings, with minimal rehearsal, actors holding scripts, and simple technical presentation. The committee’s official selections will be made by early June; notifications will be made in mid June; auditions for actor / readers will be held in early July; rehearsals will be conducted once a week for each play from mid July to mid August, and the festival will be presented at the Aloha Theatre August 15-18, 2018. A wrap up discussion and celebration will be held Sunday afternoon, August 19. at which time the “Opie” award will be presented. This is a people’s choice honor bestowed on the best script of the festival, as determined by popular vote of audience members. The Opie Award winning script will be presented to Aloha Theatre’s season planning Kokua Committee for consideration as a possible future mainstage production.
We never post calls for submissions that require a submission fee. Learn more here.
