The ninth annual festival will be performed Sept. 7 & 8 at the Lincoln Community Theatre in Mankato.
The Minnesota Shorts Play Festival will be taking submissions of short plays (10 pages or less) from Jan. 1 through March 1, 2017.
Minnesota writers can submit up to two short plays in a pdf format.
On the first title page provide your postal address, name and phone contact. The plays are sent to judges in March, with 7 scripts chosen from Minnesota writers and 7 scripts from national writers.
Each night the audience chooses a Best of the Fest award, with one playwright earning $100.
Simply email your script to firstname.lastname@example.org. The performances are family friendly, so nudity and excessive curse words will make your script ineligible. The ninth annual festival will be performed Sept. 7 & 8, 2017 at the Lincoln Community Theatre in Mankato. For more information, go to www.mnshorts.com or call coordinator Greg Abbott at 507-420-1881.
