Scripts sought for new plays
Aloha Performing Arts Company has announced its request for new stage plays which have not been published or produced for its 20th annual Original Play Festival, which will be presented Aug. 14-17 at the Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu.
Scripts of any length and on any subject will be accepted through postmark date May 3, 2013. Entries must be typewritten and securely bound, with sequentially numbered pages. Three hard copies of each script and one electronic copy on CD as a single document in PDF or Word format are required, to expedite the selection committee’s evaluation process. Each copy of the script must contain a list of characters and a brief description of the play. Scripts should not contain the playwright’s name. One separate cover sheet with the title of the play and the playwright’s name, address, phone numbers, and email address must be included, unattached to the bound scripts. This helps to ensure anonymity in evaluation and selection.
An example of a properly assembled submission will be posted by mid-February on APAC’s website, www.alohatheatre.com.
Plays selected will be mounted as staged readings, with minimal rehearsal, actors holding scripts, and simple technical presentation.
All entry materials should be sent to: APAC OPF XX, P.O. Box 794, Kealakekua, HI 96750.
The festival will be presented at the Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu Aug. 14-17.
A wrap-up discussion and celebration will be held Aug. 18, at which time the “Opie” award will be presented to the people’s choice of best script of the festival. The Opie award winning play will be considered for possible inclusion in a future mainstage season.
