Stage It! 10-Minute Plays Competition

April 28 & 29, 2018

This celebration of playwrights and audiences is in its second year at Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs. We are searching for plays that should be staged, need to staged, and that audiences want or need to see. Capitalizing on the last year’s inaugural competition and festival, we will publish and produce TEN 10-MINUTE PLAYS utilizing the fantastic resources at the Centers for the Arts as well as outside adjudicators. All plays will be performed at Center for Performing Arts on April 28 and 29, along with a Book Release Party.

Last year, the competition garnered more than 130 plays and ten playwrights were represented in the first edition of STAGE IT! 10-Minute Plays.

Playwrights are limited to 3 plays. Submission fee is $15 for the first play and $10 for each additional.

We welcome plays that have received performances, productions and/or readings, but NOT a previous publication. If selected for publication, playwrights are welcome to grant others future printing and publication but MUST inform future publications if the play is published in our book.

Each play is read and adjudicated by at least two theatre professionals. Each play receives a critique from each judge and is then ranked and rated. The first selection process will include a “semi-final” round in February, and playwrights will be informed on February 12 of their status. Final selections for publication will be made no later than March 5, 2018.

Submission Deadline: January 20, 2018
Live Performance/Book Release Party: April 28, 2018; 8:00pm & April 29, 2018; 2:00pm
