Submitted by The San Juan Community Theatre

The San Juan Community Theatre is accepting online submissions for its 2019 Playwrights Festival now through July 15, 2019. The festival organizers invite San Juan Island residents to submit short, original plays to be considered for performance at the Community Theatre Sept. 19-21 and Sept. 26-29.

The scripts will be reviewed and rated by theatrical professionals. Plays selected for fully staged or reader’s theater performances will be announced on July 29. Auditions for parts in the plays will be held Aug. 3 and 5.

Last year’s Festival featured the work of 14 island writers and drew an excellent audience response, with all but one performance completely sold out.

“This year, many of our playwrights have attended additional workshops, readings and critique sessions to hone their scripts,” said festival coordinator Stan Matthews. “I’ve been excited by the quality of the work I’ve seen thus far. The festival is shaping up to be a great showcase for island writers, directors and actors again this year.”

Further information, including details on script guidelines and information on how to submit scripts, is available online at
