Greenbrier Valley Theatre announces “New Voices” Short Play Festival

Greenbrier Valley Theatre is pleased to announce an exciting new opportunity for local playwrights to submit their short plays in GVT’s “New Voices” Short Play Festival.

The best plays will be given a public performance at GVT’s Festival of Community Plays in January 2009. Plays should be 10-15 minutes in length and include between two and five characters. Plays should be appropriate for all ages and should be written to be played by adult actors. The deadline for receipt of entries is December 1, 2008. A panel of professional theatre artists will judge the pieces and winners will be chosen in early December.

Who: Submissions are welcome from anyone but local playwrights in the Greenbrier Valley are especially encouraged to participate.

What: There is no official theme for the plays. Plays should be suitable for all ages, with minimal offensive material. Adult actors (15 and up) will be playing the parts during the festival, so characters should be geared towards that age range. Musicals will not be accepted.

When: Entries must be received by GVT no later than Dec 1. The public festival performance dates will be announced at a later date.
Other important information

By submitting a play to the New Voices Festival you will be granting GVT the rights to perform your play at the festival in January 2009, if chosen.

Please do not submit an original copy of your play, as copies will not be returned.
The number of winners selected to be performed will vary on the length of the selected shows. Anywhere from 4-7 may be chosen for performance.

If an inadequate number of entries are received, GVT reserves the right to not select any play for performance.
