MARTINEZ, Calif. – Onstage Theatre is soliciting scripts of short one-act plays to be performed in a festival at the Martinez Campbell Theater in June 2017.
Plays may be submitted to Helen Means from now through the end of January. Scripts should be original works which run 25 minutes or less. Plays will be selected for production in February and performances will occur at the Campbell Theater in May or June.
The company will choose three sets of five or six plays to be performed for seven days over two weekends. Directors will be assigned to each of the accepted plays and open auditions will be held for casting. Five or six plays will be performed on a given evening.
The theater company, now in its 38th year, has hosted one-act festivals several times when the company occupied the Old School House in Pleasant Hill. This is Onstage’s first offering of such a festival in Martinez.
Playwrights may submit their works via mail to: One-Act Festival, Onstage Theatre , 950 Escondido Ct., Alamo, CA 94507.
