web site

The Players Theatre in NYC is hosting a horror-themed Short Play Festival in October 2011, and we will be seeking submissions for new works in the genre through August 15, 2011. We would love it if we could post a submission/application listing on your blog. Below is the information needed, as well as links to websites for the festival and the theatre:

5 plays. 4 nights. 15 minutes. 1 winner!

Every week for 3 weeks!

NOTE: Selected plays will be required to pay a $50 fee to cover staffing and programs. Players’ Theatre will provide production stage manager (lighting/sound technician), house manager and box office personnel. Lights will be a stage wash. We have dual CD player available. There is no storage space for props or costumes so limit them to what you can carry back and forth.

$100 refundable deposit.

The historic Players Theatre in the heart of Greenwich Village is accepting short play and musical submissions for the October Festival competition. This October our theme will be Horror. Starting in early October, five short plays will be presented each week for three weeks. The festival will run Thursday through Sunday in the Players Loft. Each week a Best of the Festival winner will be selected by audience vote. The winner will receive a cash prize of $100.

Submission deadline is AUGUST 15th @ 5PM. So sharpen your pencil and get to work - it's only 15 minutes!
