Secret Theater seeks plays

web site

The One Act Factor is a brand new competition style one act play festival held this year in March. Each week actors, playwrights, and directors band together and compete to win cash prizes in Best Play, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress in a showdown similar to the popular talent shows we've all seen on TV. As the weeks go by, teams advance to the final rounds through audience votes. Awards are also determined by celebrity judges who give encouragement and advice to all the contestants. Hosted by the comedy troupe, Face-Off Unlimited, this new form of one act festival is sure to be fun for all involved: actors, directors, playwrights, and audience alike.

The One Act Factor is now accepting submissions for this year's festival running March 15-April 1. Deadline for submission is January 21.

Please send scripts to submissions@secrettheatre.com and visit our website www.secrettheatre.com for more information.

Guidelines for submission:

-- One Acts can be on any theme.

-- Must be under 15 minutes.

-- Maximum of 4 actors. (Acting space is small: approx 20x20)

-- No sets. (One table and four chairs will be provided)

--There is no props, or costume storage available so keep it minimal.

-- No minors (under 14) or seniors (over 60)

The theatre will provide free limited rehearsal space on a first come first served basis. There is an open call for directors as well who will be paired with the plays at the discretion of the producers. Directors are responsible for casting but the theatre will provide at least one day of open call auditions to facilitate casting as well as provide the free space (limited) if directors wish to hold their own auditions. Minor script adjustments may be suggested in order to suit the festival production. Playwrights may not direct their own submissions. Strong consideration given to submissions from Queens-based playwrights.
