Davidson Community Players’ Third Annual Boos & Brews Short Play Festival
Calling all Playwrights!
After a successful first run in October 2017, followed by an even more successful 2018, Davidson Community Players is embarking on its Third Annual Boos & Brews short play festival. This event will take place at the DCP Actor’s Lab in Cornelius in a black box theatre setting. We invite you to submit a play for our consideration.
Here are the details:
- Your play is to be approximately 10 minutes in length.
- The theme is to be Halloween / Ghost/Spirit-oriented (comedy or drama).
- It should contain no more than five characters.
- Your set is to be minimalistic, i.e. no refrigerators or heavy objects.
- Ditto for costumes, props and make-up.
Your submission should include a “cover page” that contains the title, your name, email address, and phone number. All subsequent pages must have the title ONLY along with the page number. Prior to giving your submission to the play selection committee, the cover page will be removed so that members will not know who wrote what. Playwrights whose work is chosen for performance will be notified by Sept 6.
E-mail your submission in a Word document to Sylvia Schnople.
Deadline –September 9, 2019
The selection committee members will choose the top six or seven to be performed live at the festival. Playwrights whose work is selected will receive two complimentary tickets to one of the three performances Oct. 24-26, 2019.
New this year: Selection Committee Award-The winner of this award will be chosen by the members of the play selection committee. The winner may or may not be the same as the Patron’s Choice Award. The winner will receive $100.00
Patron’s Choice Awards! At each performance every audience member will be given a list of the shows on a note card. They will be instructed to circle their favorite and drop the form into a box. The top vote-getter will be awarded $100 and $50 will go to second place.
