Pendragon asking for play submissions for Young Playwright Contest

SARANAC LAKE – Pendragon Theatre is reminding aspiring young playwrights to take pen to paper and fingers to keyboard for the annual young playwright competition open to all middle and high school age students.

Entries should be a traditional 10-minute play, no longer than 10 pages (no smaller than 10-point font) and have a maximum of four characters.

Submissions longer than 10 pages or with more than 4 characters will be disqualified. Entry deadline is Feb. 28, 2019.

All plays entered in the contest will be read by a panel of theatrical and literary judges. The judges will choose a winner and a runner up in each category. The winning plays will be fully performed at the Young Playwrights Festival in the spring of 2019, and runner up plays will be read onstage.

The authors of the winning plays will be invited to participate in all aspects of the staging of their play, from auditions to final dress rehearsals.

All students who submit a play will be invited to attend the festival. Pendragon is offering free play writing workshops to schools and interested parties.

More information and entry forms can be found www.pendragontheatre.org/playwrights-festival. Questions can be answered by calling 518-891-1854.

Pendragon Theatre is located at 15 Brandy Brook Ave., Saranac Lake.
