Call for New Play Submissions

for The Oakville Players’ TOP TEN, a Ten Minute Play Festival.

Have you written a short play that you would like to see produced? Consider submitting to The Oakville Players’ (TOP) second ten-minute play festival, happening May 26 – 28, 2016.

The festival is open to anyone, but priority will be given to playwrights residing in the Halton region.

We’re specifically looking for short, 10 – 12 minute scripts, of any style (e.g. drama, comedy), requiring a minimum set, very limited lighting (lights up/lights down), simple sound effects and costumes.

For this show, TOP is offering a great performance space, basic lighting, a call for auditions to its members, a rehearsal space, an audition space, and the support of a community of many like-minded, enthusiastic volunteers.

A good rule of thumb is that a 10 page script is equal to about 10 minutes. If the Board considers your show is running long, you will be asked to cut back on the script so as to be fair to all participants in the festival.

If you have an unproduced and unpublished play that you would like to submit to TOP TEN, send an email with the subject line Playwrights! and attached Word or PDF copy of your play to vicepres@oakvilleplayers.ca by March 15, 2016.

Make sure your script has the following:
• a cover page with your name, contact information and name of the play;
• a second page with a brief description of the characters;
• page numbers and title of the play on each page

Please indicate if you prefer to direct your own play or work with a director.

There are no submission fees. No royalties will be paid.
