Call for Scripts - 2014 Barn Players 6 x 10 Ten-Minute Play Festival

Announcing our playwrights workshop on August 2nd!


Grab your pencils! Or laptops! The Barn Players Theatre is holding
its seventh annual 6x10 Play Festival on December 12th – 14th, and we are looking for some great scripts. The Festival will produce six short plays, each roughly ten minutes in length and all by local & regional writers. Tell us a great story in ten minutes and you'll get the chance to see your work performed on our stage.

Playwrights whose scripts are selected will be encouraged to
participate in rehearsal and to work collaboratively with the
director. They may modify their script as they watch it take shape on
the stage.

Playwrights also are welcome to participate in a Writer's Workshops to be held at The Barn Theatre on Saturday, August 2nd from 10:00am to Noon.
