Writers Needed for MVLCT New Play Festival

Mt. Vernon Lisbon Community Theatre is announcing a new play festival as part of its 2019 season. Eight to ten new, unpublished short plays by area writers will be selected for production in March. Preference for selection will be given to writers living in, near, or with ties to the Mt. Vernon/Lisbon area. The requirements for the plays themselves are:

1. They must be brand new and unpublished.

2. They must be written on a theme to be announced in late September.

3. They must be 5 – 10 minutes in length and adhere to the production guidelines announced with the theme.

4. They must be submitted by November 30.

Please contact us by September 1 if you are interested in writing for the festival. Include your contact information and a brief summary of your theatre or writing work. We will announce the theme in late September and let you know if you have been selected as a writer for the festival. Writers will be given more specific information at that time.

Thank you!
