Title: MonoMyth seeks Playwrights and Directors for Short Play Festival
Post by: Cathy Herzog on December 28, 2016, 11:38:06 AM
Please join MonoMyth for our first short play festival March 10-11 at the Pocket Theatre in Greenwood. We plan to explore the diversity of our community and what the impact of the recent election has been on the lives of individuals who feel their rights infringed upon and freedoms stifled.
We are looking for play submissions from a myriad of genres - comedy, drama and everything in between. Length should be anywhere between 2 minute monologues to 30 minute one-acts. We will be looking to put on 9-10 shows during the two day run. Shows should be for casts of no more than 3, and require minimal set and costumes. While there is no limit on subject matter, please avoid need for any mess on stage (the Pocket does not allow glitter, stage blood, or anything similar).
Please visit www.monomyththeatre.com to submit your script for consideration.
We are also looking for directors for each of our short plays. We are looking for directors of all levels of experience and all walks of life. There will be one director per short play, so 9-10 directors total. The scripts will be assigned in early February, and you will be responsible for casting your show and going through the rehearsal process. There will be 3 sponsored rehearsals at TPS during the process - the first rehearsal, the middle of the rehearsal process and right before we open. All these will be full show rehearsals with all shows able to work together in a group.
Please review the below questions and send an email with your answers and your resume (if you have one!) to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have a resume, please just send an email with your experience, etc.
-What is your background in the arts?
-What kind of play would you like to mount?
-What is important to you regarding the stories you want to tell?
-Do you have any conflicts in the months of February and March that would conflict with potential groups rehearsals? (We will be scheduling these rehearsals around all directorsí personal schedules.)
If you are interested in acting - please send us an email and let us know! Directors will be casting their own shows, but once our directors are chosen we will share the list of actors who are interested for first consideration.
There is no monetary compensation for this festival. However - all the resources of MonoMyth Theatre will be at your disposal. If you would like any of the staff to attend a rehearsal, or if you have questions, or if you just want to meet for coffee and discuss your show, we will be available. This showcase is to give you the chance and the platform to tell the story you want to tell - whether you are a writer, a director, or an actor. MonoMyth Theatre strongly encourages POC and LGBTQ writers and directors to apply.
Deadline for written submissions and director applications is January 25. Scripts and directors will be chosen within the next week, with the first group read through/rehearsal at the beginning of February. Please visit www.monomyththeatre.com or email us email@example.com with any questions - we look forward to reviewing your submissions and getting the chance to work with you!
