Join us for our 12th Annual Festival of Shorts. Each performance includes eight short plays that include multiple directors and casts. Come and be a part of our annual festival where the audience votes for a favorite at each performance from among the eight finalists. The theme for this year is Pay It Forward. We were looking for scripts that highlight acts of kindness, however small, and how those acts make a huge difference.
The finalists are selected from submissions from around the globe and have never before been produced for an audience. Past winners have later been developed into full-length award-winning plays!
After the closing performance, we will announce the winners for:
Monologue: Please come prepared with a 1 to 2 minute-long comedic monologue AND a 1 to 2 minute-long dramatic monologue.
Headshot and Resume: Please bring one copy of each. The headshot does not need to be professionally made – a print out of a selfie will suffice. If this prevents a barrier to participation, please contact the office about printing.
Actors of all ethnicity, gender, identity, and ability are encouraged to audition. Any gender identities listed are referring to the characters in the play and the pronouns used in the script.
