This year we had over 40 submissions for the 3rd Annual New Works Festival. It was a challenge to narrow the pieces down. Please understand that we read a lot of fantastic, enlightening and beautiful pieces. Here are the plays that we will be doing in the Spring Semester.
Please note that you MUST email Professor Matthew Salazar-Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org to accept or decline your play in the festival. All playwrights are REQUIRED to sign up for Dramatic Arts 242. An add code will be given to you as soon as you send in your acceptance. Please make contact ASAP. Thank you! Playwrights will continue to work their plays the first few weeks of the semester.
Auditions for actors for these plays are Feb 1 from 6-10pm in the Saville Theatre and callbacks are Feb 2 from 7:30-10pm in the Blackbox Theatre.
Performances are March 9-18, Fri & Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm. All playwrights must attend each performance as there is a talk-back after EACH show.
All playwrights must be in attendance.
