CALLING ALL PLAYWRIGHTS! It's that time again, and Wasatch Theatre Company is excited to announce a call for playwrights for our 2016 Page-to-Stage Festival! Applications to be a part of the festival are now being accepted.
WTC is looking for six to seven playwrights to work with for this project. The finished scripts will be produced during the festival, which will take place June 16-19, 2016, in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in SLC.
Submissions are due by or before December 1st, 2015. Selected playwrights will be notified by January 1st, 2016. If you have questions that are not covered off on in the information below, please message us here on Facebook or send email to the address listed below.
How to submit and what you should know before doing so:
-Interested playwrights are asked to submit a SAMPLE script by or before December 1st. (The sample script will NOT be considered for production and instead will be used to assess the merit of the playwright’s work.)
-All Scripts must be submitted electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions can also be sent to this email address.
-Selected playwrights will conceive and workshop an original, 10-minute script for the festival, which will be based on a theme to be presented to playwrights upon selection.
-The workshop process will run between January and March. Playwrights will work with a dedicated facilitator, as well as other key members of the Wasatch Team during this time, to shape their writing. Successful candidates, will be asked to meet every two weeks to facilitate this. This is mandatory and you should insure you can participate fully during the process before submitting.
-This is a gratis opportunity, however your completed work will belong to you and will only require that anyone granted permission to produce the work later, must credit "[Title of Short]n was originally developed in association with the WTC Page-to-Stage Festival, and originally produced by Wasatch Theatre Company" for all future readings, performances, etc.
-Playwrights are also asked to attend a reception/post-show talk-back during the run of the festival in June 2016; to attend a staged reading; and to provide feedback to the author of a full-length play during the festival.
