Ninth Annual Student Ten-Minute Playwriting Festival
Forty-nine plays were submitted by high school students from the 16 counties surrounding Sarasota/Bradenton, and eight have been selected for production in the 2021 Student Playwriting Festival in February. A panel of judges will select Best Play and Runner-Up, with playwrights receiving cash scholarships of $1000 and $500, respectively. Although written for the stage, the plays will be adapted for a “radio theater” format since no stage is available during the pandemic. The finished recordings can be heard here February 15-21 — tickets will be available soon.
NEW SERVICE FOR LOCAL PERFORMERS
Frequent visitors to this website might have noticed a new menu item above: RECORDING SERVICE. Utilizing the recording equipment purchased for the recent Ten-Minute Play Festival, we can now assist local performers in preparing their audio “reels” to submit to casting directors in search of vocal talent.
