Watermelon One-Act Play Festival

web site

We welcome all original and unpublished works between 10 and 45 minute total running time (includes set up/breakdown and curtain call). Twelve to sixteen 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 (prior to set up and after breakdown), and there is no technical award.
​WOAF rules and a script submission form are available below. A sample adjudication sheet is provided for educational purposes.
A total of three (3) original and unpublished scripts can be submitted for each playwright. Please remember that a separate submission form is required for each play. The script along with its submission form must be emailed to watermelon@watermeloninc.org by Valentine's Day.

The production representative is the person submitting the play and the main point of contact. If the representative is not the playwright, a letter signed by the playwright giving WOAF permission to show a production of their play is required with the submission form.
For scripts equal in story quality, preference may be given to shorter scripts with minimal technical requirements.
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.
Script submission is FREE.  However, if selected, a non-refundable $100 entry fee is required to assist with defraying festival expenses.
​Please email us if you have any questions.
