Playwrights wanted for San Juan Community Theatre festival

Playwrights: get ready to share your works in hopes of seeing them come to life at the San Juan Community Theatre.

SJCT is gearing up for its annual Islands Playwrights Festival and is now taking submissions for plays to be presented in 2009.

All residents of San Juan County are invited to participate. The festival categories have changed, and are as follows: 30-minute plays, 10-minute plays and 5-minute monologues.

The deadline for submission is Aug. 15. Plays can be sent to the theater at P.O. Box 1063, Friday Harbor, or dropped off at the theater business office. Submission fees, which will be used to pay for professional judges, are $40 for each 30-minute play; $25 for each 10-minute play; and $15 for each monologue. A check for the total fee must be included with four copies of each play/monologue.

A free information packet is available for pick-up at the theater box office. If you have questions, call Merritt Olsen at 378-3211, ext. 29.

The 2009 Islands Playwrights Festival is scheduled for Feb. 6-8 and 12-15, in SJCT’s Gubelman Theatre.
