Playwrighting Opportunity for High School Students

The Northern Arizona Playwriting Showcase is looking for the best 10-minute plays written by Arizona high school students to feature in the 2015 showcase August 28, 29 & 30, 2015 in Flagstaff, Arizona!

➢The contest submission is open May 1 –June 15

➢There is NO fee for high school students, but they must identify themselves as high school contestants in their submission e-mail!

➢ Ideally, plays submitted to our contest will be between 7 and 10 pages, with a running time of 8 to 10 minutes. (Note: This does not include character list, character descriptions, or detailed scenic descriptions at the beginning of the play. Those may be submitted on a separate page.)

➢ Plays should be written for no more than 3 actors. Co-authored plays are acceptable. Multiple submissions are also acceptable.

➢ Winning plays will receive a staged reading, but we cannot accommodate elaborate props, so the artistry should reside in the dialogue and action, not the staging.

➢Plays should be e-mailed to northernazplaywriting@gmail.com

➢Plays will be judged anonymously.
