Watermelon One-Act Festival (WOAF)

web site

Welcome to watermeloninc.org - home of Watermelon Inc.'s production of the Watermelon One-Act Festival (WOAF)!

Watermelon Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the theater arts and to providing a nurturing and educational environment for original works written by both students and adults.

Submission deadline is February 14, 2016
WOAF is an excellent opportunity to showcase an original one-act play in a competitive environment and to receive instructional feedback that will help to further develop the play for future productions. Cash prizes totaling more than $1,000 will be given to the best overall script, audience choice, production/director, ensemble, and performers.

We welcome all original and unpublished works between 10 and 65 minute running time (includes set up/breakdown and curtain call). Ten to fourteen entries will be selected based on the quality of the writing, story/plot, and character development. Minimal technical requirements is advised as there are only 60 minutes for a technical rehearsal, all props and actors must fit into a 10- by 10-foot space, and there is no technical award.

To submit a play is completely free and up to three scripts can be submitted per participant. However, if selected, a non-refundable $100 entry fee is required to assist with defraying festival expenses.

Further information, including festival rules and script submission forms, are available for download.

Watermelon is NOT producing the play, merely presenting the finished product, which may be performed a total of two times if selected as a finalist.

Please email us if you have any questions.
