2017: GOTTA LAUGHATC Studios is pleased to announce our 2017 theme for our exciting playwriting project for Middle and High School Teens, “Gotta Laugh.”
ATC is now accepting SHORT (10 minutes or under), one-act scripts that reflect the theme “Gotta Laugh.” While true comedic scenes would be wonderful, there are also times when we find there is no better way to deal with an issue than to laugh. You are encouraged to write from either perspective.
Submissions may be sent directly to ATC by emailing as a .doc or .docx to email@example.com. Deadline for submission is March 15, 2017.
Scripts will be read and evaluated by professionals and teachers. From all submissions, 10-12 will be selected for public performance and cast and produced through ATC. The audience and a panel of “judges” composed of professional theater personnel, will select three to be featured on the internet: the chosen pieces could be seen around the world!
• Scenes should be no longer than 10 minutes in playing time
Monologues will be accepted
• May contain 1 - 10 characters
• Simple setting
• Written in stage (not film/tv) format. We can recommend free script-formatting software
• Keep technical requirements to a minimum
This is ATC's sixth annual Young Playwrights Project.
This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Passaic County Cultural & Heritage Council from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
