14th Annual Northport One-Act Play Festival


Deadline: June 15, 2023


The Northport One-Act Play Festival is an opportunity to showcase one-act plays and offer the theater community an opportunity to produce a performance of those plays.

There is NO FEE to submit an application and play for consideration to be in the Festival. You may submit up to 2 plays for the Festival. A separate application must accompany each play submitted.

JUDGING/PARTICIPATION: Plays submitted for the Festival will be reviewed by our panel of judges. The plays may also be read during a meeting at the Northport Reader’s Theater, before or after the Festival. Playwrights whose plays are presented at a Reader’s Theater meeting will be invited to attend.
Playwrights will be notified on or about July 1, 2023 if their play is chosen for the Festival. At that time, each playwright must submit 

A PARTICIPATION FEE of $75.00 per accepted script, which will help defray some of the expenses – e.g. space rental, printing, and publicity - with the Release Agreement by July 31, 2023. Playwrights will receive two complimentary tickets to each Performance of their play plus a DVD or link to the video.

The 2023 Northport One-Act Play Festival will be held at St Paul’s United Methodist Church, 270 Main St, Northport, NY 11768.

We request that you be available to attend your play’s performances if possible. An Open Discussion with the playwrights, directors, and cast may follow each performance if time allows.

REMEMBER: If you do not produce your own play, a group from the local theater community will be doing so. That group must find space to conduct their own rehearsals. 

The Northport One-Act Play Festival will provide for One (1) cue-to-cue technical rehearsal, which will last no longer than 20 minutes in the theater during the week preceding the Festival. There will also be One (1) dress rehearsal on the stage. All rehearsals are scheduled in the order that plays will be presented in the Festival. Each program consists of up to 7 plays. A mandatory preview on Sep 23rd will be scheduled and must be attended by Director and actors. Half-hour time slots will be offered between 11:00am and 5:00pm.
