Play Contest Details
Lakeshore Players Theatre is accepting submissions for 10-minute plays. Finalist plays will be produced at our Annual Festival May 31-June 10, 2018.

Contest Schedule
January 2018: Quarter-finalists for the Festival will be announced
Mid-March 2018: Semi-Finalists will be announced
April 2018: Finalists will be announced

High School Playwrights
High school-aged playwrights are encouraged to enter. Plays must include a letter from a teacher or school administrator, written on school letterhead, verifying that the play was written during high school, in addition to the guidelines below. If the committee chooses to name a high school entry as a finalist for the 14th annual contest, the play will be produced with the other finalists in our festival in June 2018.

All Playwrights
Please read the following rules and requirements carefully. Plays not meeting the requirements will be disqualified.

Submission Guidelines

The play should be approximately ten-minutes in length.
The play must have no more than five on-stage (speaking and non-speaking) characters.
You may submit only one play, so send us your best! Please do not make more than one submission.
The play should be in a “play format” making it easy for the readers. (We like 12-point, easy to read fonts, such as Times New Roman or Arial)
The play must be unpublished and unproduced at the time of submission to our contest. We do screen for this, so don’t send us your play if it has been produced. (Staged readings are not counted as “produced.”)
Submitting your play to our contest grants Lakeshore Players the right to produce your play in our annual festival and photograph and/or videotape it for archival purposes, if it is chosen as a finalist.
Additional Guidelines

The play should have simple technical requirements. There won’t be a set — a few furniture pieces and a few props only — we only have about one minute in between plays to change scenes.
As a community theatre, we want to appeal to the largest possible audience, therefore plays with excessive offensive language are less likely to be selected – please keep that in consideration.
Two ways to submit: Email or Mail.
Your play must be received no later than November 15, 2017 to be eligible.
Submission Options
Email two PDFs or mail two copies. Only plays submitted exactly as outlined below will be accepted.
