web site

Playwrights! Come play with us! TCL is seeking short comedic sketches to be included in Comic Con con Comedy. Please submit short plays that follow these guidelines:

2 to 8 minutes in length.
Simple staging requirement; unusual costumes are acceptable.
PG-13 or tamer content.
Cast size should be 7 or fewer.
Plays that include female characters are encouraged.
The sketch needs to be related to the “comic con experience,” which could include comic books, fan conventions, superheroes, manga, etc.
Amusing flights of imagination are encouraged!
Multiple submissions from the same author are welcome.
Deadline for submissions is January 12, 2012.

Please submit your scripts as an email attachment (pdf preferred) to our artistic director, Madge Montgomery (madge@tclstage.org). Put “Comic” in the subject line of the email. There is no fee for submissions, so get cracking!

Playwrights whose work is selected to be included will receive a small stipend based upon ticket sales. The production will be presented in July, 2012 at the Mary Miller Theater in Lafayette, Colorado. Playwrights retain all rights to their material.

In 2008, TCL produced 10,000 Wayniacs: Very Short Plays Inspired by Wayne Newton. It was a tremendous success with sold-out shows. One script from the production, The Strapper by C.P. Stancich, went on to win a national 10-minute play contest. In 2010, we produced G-Men in G-Strings: The J. Edgar Hoover Follies, which had similar success, and has since been published by Heuer Publishing: www.hitplays.com

Theater Company of Lafayette is an award-winning community theater in Colorado known for producing new works. In fact, we’ve presented 36 world premiere plays, short and full-length, in the past 36 months! We hope yours will be one of them.
