|It's that time again!
The 3rd Annual
will blow through Los Angeles
September 29 through October 22nd, 2006
|The Eclectic Company Theatre is proud to present the third annual HURRICANE SEASON, a new works festival and playwright's competition. HURRICANE SEASON will blow through Los Angeles September 29 through October 22nd, 2006. Each of the first three weekends of HURRICANE SEASON will feature a new program of one-act plays that have never been produced before. The fourth weekend will be a re-staging of the first three weekend favorites.
The plays will be selected by members of the Eclectic Company Theatre for a professional production. At the end of each program, the audience will cast their votes for their favorite play of the evening. A cash prize of $100 will be awarded each weekend to the playwright who receives the most audience votes. A “play-off” will be held the fourth weekend with the top three audience favorites competing for an additional $200 grand prize for the festival.
- Scripts must be previously un-produced.
- The running time of the play should be 60 minutes or less.
- One-person shows will not be considered.
- Plays should be able to fit into a black-box theatre (go easy on the sea battles
and helicopter landings).
- There is a $10 processing fee payable with each submitted script or 3 scripts for
$25. (All fees go towards production.)
- DEADLINE for submission is MAY 1, 2006.
- Scripts will not be returned unless accompanied by a SASE.
- Selected playwrights will be notified on JULY 5, 2006.
Interested playwrights should submit two copies of their script(s), accompanied by a title page that includes Name, Address, Phone, E-mail, and source* along with a check payable to The Eclectic Company Theatre. Mail submissions to:
C/O THE ECLECTIC COMPANY THEATRE
5312 LAUREL CANYON BLVD.
VALLEY VILLAGE, CA 91607
Please advise on your title page how you first came to hear about this contest/festival. We are hoping to track the best sources for soliciting general playwright submissions in the future.
|OK - the submission period for Hurricane Season 2006 is closed, and we're reading like mad!
Stay tuned for the contest winners whose shows will be produced in this year's 3rd annual one-act play festival!
Thanks to all the playwrights who submitted
their work for consideration.
