Georgia Southern's Communication Arts and Theatre South are pleased to announce that the submission period for the 2013 10-Minute Play Festival is now open. All students are welcome to submit scripts for consideration.
Scripts should be emailed to Lisa Abbott at email@example.com no later than Dec. 6. Through a blind review, a panel will select eight to 10 scripts to be performed at the festival. Each selected script will be assigned a director and cast and will be workshopped over the course of the spring semester as a part of the Theatre South programming. To wrap up the festival, concert readings will be presented at the Black Box Theatre on Friday and Saturday, April 19–20, 2013. Participation in and admission to the 10-Minute Play Festival is free for students.
All submissions must be formatted as word documents and include a title page displaying the play title and the submitting student’s name, phone number and email address. This identifying information should appear only on the title page in order to ensure anonymity for the adjudicators.
Scripts should be approximately seven to 12 pages in length when typed in a 12-point font. Students may submit as many scripts as they wish, but only two scripts per writer will be included in the final grouping. Selected scripts will be announced during the first week back from Georgia Southern’s winter break.
All students are encouraged to participate in this event. If you have any questions or to find out more information, contact associate professor Abbott firstname.lastname@example.org.
