After the success of our One Act Series, and the three shows that played to sold out audiences last year, Studio C Artists is planning to produce two more shows in the Series in 2014. Today, we announce the call for writers’ submissions for the next show in the Series – “In The Kitchen”. In this next collection of original works, Studio C Artists will produce ten one-acts written, directed, and performed around a common setting (to make a cohesive show) – this time it’s a kitchen; and a common theme – that being gossip. Everyone will eventually have the chance to participate, but right now we’re putting out a call for writers. (And not to worry – professional writers are encouraged to participate, but prior experience as a writer is not necessary.)
Here’s the scoop…
We are going to be running this differently from last year. If you wish to submit, please send in a completed One Act play no more than 12 minutes in length by the deadline below (PDF format is preferred). The scenarios should involve anything that could take place in a kitchen, and be sure to include the gossip theme in some way. Please remember to keep things simple, as we are limited in the size of our stage. No more than 2-4 characters per piece – and props and other elements are kept to a bare minimum. The story is key. They can be either comedies or dramas, your choice.
REGISTER HERE – please register within the next week by clicking this link if you intend to send in a submission – we need to track the number of submissions we will be receiving.
- 10 plays will be chosen.
- Please provide 1 completed One Act play, 12 minutes in length.
- All works should be original – not having been produced at another theater in Los Angeles before.
- Submissions are due no later than Monday, February 17th @ 10PM. (You can send them in earlier if you have it ready.)
- Include a logline, a synopsis, and casting (character) breakdowns with your submission.
- Email you submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full details are contained in the attached document. PLEASE BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE WRITERS’ GUIDELINES AND READ ALL CONTENTS. Submission that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be considered for this production.
Plays will be chosen by committee for the next Series based upon the originality or their scenarios, along with the competency of the writing.
All writers will retain the copyrights to their play, but will receive no compensation other than the production of their play. Feel free to pass along this information to anyone you think might be interested – and good luck!
