Call for Scripts: Freshwater Theatre Goes Back to High School

web site

Freshwater is issuing a call for original one act scripts for our upcoming spring repertory production, Freshwater Goes to High School.  All chosen scripts will be non-exclusively published in an anthology.  Authors will retain all rights to their work and all future royalties.

These scripts should be written to follow the Minnesota State High School League guidelines for one act play competitions (please see link below).   Our goal with this show is to produce an evening of truly new, topical one acts suited in tone, content and length for production at the high school level, and provide new material for high school directors in the region.

Set and costume requirements should be simple, as they must be portable and quickly set up in a competition situation.  Thirty five minutes is the maximum length allowed.

We are looking for pieces that will stretch and challenge young actors.  Just because we are seeking scripts appropriate for teens does not mean the shows cannot grapple with tough issues. Comedies and dramas will be be given equal consideration.

For further rules and guidelines:

Please send submissions (PDF preferred) or questions to submissions@freshwatertheatre.com by January 15, 2013.
