Do you love to write stories?
East Valley Children’s Theater is looking for plays written by students 18 and younger!
Submission of plays needs to be in a word document, typed and double spaced and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with a deadline of December 10, 2017. Plays must be no longer than 10 minutes in length, have at least two characters, but no more than six, with a single setting.
A cover sheet needs to include the playwright’s name, age, school attending, email address and phone number.
Six plays will be selected from the entrants for a staged reading at the Festival, and will also receive a critique by award winning playwrights.
All entrants will be guests for the staged readings, as well as guests of East Valley Children’s Theater at its February production of “Beauty and the Computer Geek”, winner of EVCT’s annual playwriting contest, with the opportunity to attend a workshop by the winning playwrights, Susan C. Hunter and Tom Shelton.
East Valley Children’s Theatre will choose a former EVCT performer or technician to receive a scholarship for higher education. The Theatre has scholarship money to give out this year. Selected candidates need to be enrolled in or intending to enroll full-time in a two-year junior college, four-year undergraduate college or university, graduate program, or professional theatre-training program. This is a one-year scholarship for the school year beginning Fall of 2018. All applicants and recipients may reapply each year. Proof of enrollment is required.
Deadline to apply is June 1, 2018
