San Antonio Call for Scripts and Directors for One-Act Festival, Renaissance Guild, Deadlines February 20 and 21

Renaissance Guild San Antonio TX 

Calling all Authors & Directors -- San Antonio's Premiere Black Theatre Company presents ActOne Series, Volume XVI

Scripts & Directors wanted! The AOS was developed to provide a venue and a voice to writers. Once the pieces are selected, local playwrights will have the opportunity to observe some of the rehearsals and address questions from directors and actors.

The process culminates in two evenings of performances on May 9 and 10, 2013, when the writers get the opportunity to see their works come to life, local actors show their stuff on stage and the San Antonio community gets the opportunity to celebrate the work of their neighbors, friends and promising new theatre voices.

Theme: "Writer's Choice", so writers can tell us what's on their mind!! Almost any topic goes: comedy, drama, religious, politics, love, hate, etc. We Want Your Words!

Guidelines: We are looking for copy written, unpublished works that have not been previously performed in the Southwest Region, 5 to 15 minutes in length (can be an excerpt from a longer piece), with a maximum of 6 characters, and little or no technical requirements. Although we are accepting scripts for roles for all actors ages 12-99, we are also looking for scripts that feature young actors ages 12-18 in this series. Submissions are strictly volunteer-non-equity.
