The Community Players
(May 30, 2015, Tucson. AZ) The Community Players, one of Tucson’s longest existing theatre companies, has announced the introduction of The Festival Of Acts, an event that will become an annual contest for playwrights living in Arizona. The contest will begin June 1, 2015 and accept submissions through April 1, 2016. All of the plays submitted will be judged on the following criteria: Plot, Character Development, Dialogue and Overall Writing Quality. The submitted works must be between 30 and 45 minutes in length and be unpublished and unproduced. The three plays that are judged to be the best will then be produced by The Community Players in The Festival Of One Acts, the final show of their 2015-16 season. “It’s very exciting for us,” says Scott Berg, Board President of The Community Players, “to develop and oversee, what could become a great avenue for playwrights state wide, to get their work out there, to get it read by people in the theatre community, and potentially have it produced. To be able to offer that kind of opportunity is very rewarding.”
A full list of the rules and guidelines for submitting can be found on The Community Players website at www.communityplayerstucson.org and clicking on the “Rules For Contest” button. A submission cover page is provided to make it more convenient for everyone wishing to enter their work. Submissions are only being taken electronically so everyone is encouraged to familiarize themselves with the submission guidelines so as not to forget a critical element if they won’t be utilizing the provided form. Submitting playwrights must reside within the state of Arizona. All efforts have been made to make things as clear as possible, however, if people have questions, they can send an email to FestivalOfOneActs@outlook.com. Please allow 48 hours for a response. Best of luck everyone.
