The Secret Theatre is pleased to announce its second one-act competition: Midsummer Nights, taking place August 23rd through September 1st. In the tradition of our last festival competition, Midsummer Nights will feature actors, playwrights, and directors banding together and competing to win cash prizes in an epic theatrical showdown. In the first week, the programs will be voted on each night and the top plays will advance to the second week which will encompass the Semi-Finals. The Festival culminates on Saturday, September 1st, at which time the Finals will take place and Prizes will be awarded for Best Play, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress. Whether you're on stage, behind the scenes, or in the audience: this is going to be a great time.

Midsummer Nights is now accepting submissions for this year's festival running August 23rd through September 1st.
Deadline for submission is July 13th, 2012.

Please send scripts (in PDF or Word only, please) to submissions@secrettheatre.com and visit our website www.secrettheatre.com for more information.
Best Play $200 + Staged reading of either full length or multiple short/one acts
Best Director $100 + “ “ “ “
Best Actor $ 50
Best Actress $ 50
Guidelines for submission:
--One Acts can be on any theme.
--Must be under 15 minutes.
--No sets. (Some set pieces will be provided as necessary)
--There are no props or costume storage available so it must be kept minimal.

The theatre will provide free limited rehearsal space on a first come first served basis (at least 3 rehearsal hours per play if needed). There is an open call for directors as well who will be paired with the plays at the discretion of the producers. However if the playwright has a director they’d like to recommend for their piece, it will be taken into consideration. Directors are responsible for casting but the theatre may provide free space (limited) if directors wish to hold their own auditions. Minor script adjustments may be suggested in order to suit the festival production. Strong consideration will be given to submissions from Queens-based playwrights.
