web site

(Newport, RI)

Salve Regina University Theatre Arts program is currently seeking submissions from playwrights for a week long new play festival to be held from June 24-30, 2012. A panel of readers will select multiple 10-minute plays and one full-length play script to be performed during the week long festival held at the newly renovated Casino Theatre located at 9 Freebody Street, Newport, RI. Scripts will only be accepted until November 1, 2011.

The 10-minute play category is open to all playwrights and all genres of scripts. The play committee will choose 8-12 plays for performance during the festival with the audience favorite receiving a cash prize. Playwrights should submit their work electronically to http://salvetheatreplayfestival.submishmash.com/submit.

Full-length plays will be accepted from Rhode Island resident playwrights only. Electronic submissions of full-length plays will not be accepted.

One play will be chosen for a workshop production in the Casino Theatre. Playwrights should submit work that has not been previously produced; however plays that have received readings will be accepted. A short rehearsal process will take place prior to the festival and the winning playwright will be encouraged to attend and make edits. Interested Rhode Island playwrights can mail a copy of their script to the Theatre Arts program at Salve Regina University located at 100 Ochre Point Avenue in Newport, RI 02840.

The committee will only accept submissions from October 1-November 1, 2011. No plays received after that date will be read. There is no submission fee.
