Pendragon Theatre is looking for submissions for its Young Playwrights Festival. Submissions due Feb. 1, 2015

Calling all high school aged playwrights! Young playwrights across the Adirondack Park are being asked to submit original one-act plays and musicals to be adjudicated by the Pendragon team for a chance to be presented on a professional stage. The winning playwrights will work with a creative team composed of a director, dramaturg, designers, and actors to develop and stage the script. Students should expect a vibrant discussion of the work, a full rehearsal with the artistic team, and opportunities to re-write their plays. The Festival culminates in a full performance of the winning plays and a script-in-hand public reading of the runners-up. Pendragon artists will work with interested students and/or classes to present playwrighting workshops. In order to be eligible, plays must be between 10 and 30 pages long, and can be on the subject of your choosing! Co-writing with other students is allowed. There are no fees to submit, and up to three plays per playwright/playwrighting team may be submitted.

For more information, or to download the submission form, please visit our website at www.pendragontheatre.org, call us at 518-891-1854 or email to info@pendragontheatre.org.

 

Pendragon Theatre is located at 15 Brandy Brook Ave, Saranac Lake, NY, 12983.

Dear Teachers:

Pendragon’s Young Playwrights Festival will take place at the end of March. We are calling for submissions from all high schools in the Adirondack Park. The goals of our festival are to nurture young writers especially of plays, to teach the power of the word especially when translated to stage, and to foster artists and audiences especially of theater.  We hope the festival will also provide further opportunities for you to work with your students on drama as another vehicle of written and spoken expression.

The winning playwrights will work with a creative team composed of a director, dramaturg, designers, and actors to develop and stage the script. Students should expect a vibrant discussion of the work, a full rehearsal with the artistic team, and opportunities to re-write their plays.  The Festival culminates in a full performance of the winning plays and a script-in-hand public reading of the runners-up.

We need your help to spread the word. Pendragon artists would also be happy to come and visit with interested students and/or classes to present playwrighting workshops. Enclosed is the entry form and some guidelines for playwriting.

Thank you so much for passing this along and please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Sincerely,

 

Karen Lordi-Kirkham

Executive/Artistic Director
