The St. Louis Actors’ Studio is proud to announce call for submissions for the 4th Annual LaBute New Theater Festival at the Gaslight Theater, with plays debuting from July 8-31, 2016. Submissions will be accepted October 1 through December 31, 2015.
Professional Submissions: Successful entries will have no more than four characters and be crafted specifically to exploit our intimate performance space. (18' x 18' stage) Changes in scenery or setting should be achievable quickly and with few major set moves. Our focus is on fundamental dramaturgy: plot, character and theme.
Professional, new and previously unproduced one-act play submissions should include a letter of inquiry, a synopsis and a 10-page sample from the script. Running time for each performance should not exceed 45 minutes.
Up to eight plays will be chosen, in addition, a new piece from Mr. LaBute will be performed every night for the run of the festival. Mr. LaBute is scheduled to participate in the opening weekend activities.
High School Submissions: Winning plays by high school students will be presented in readings. The guidelines are straightforward: The one act should include no more than four characters featuring a clearly developed plot and distinctive characters. No longer than 15 minutes in length.
Non-Professional, new and previously unproduced one-act play submissions should include a letter of inquiry and complete script.
We are thrilled that Neil will be working with us again. Lending his name and talents to foster new works in the theater is just another example of his generosity and commitment to the arts, and we could not be more proud to host this ongoing event," says, William Roth, Founder and Producing Director of St. Louis Actors' Studio.
