We are now accepting submissions for our sixth annual festival of 10 minute plays by playwrights from Hamilton and surrounding areas.
HamilTEN 2018 happens April 27 to 29 at Hamilton's Staircase Theatre.
Submissions are due on January 8th, 2018. Selected individuals will be notified of inclusion in the festival shortly after that.
Submission Guidelines -
- Each playwright and/or director may submit only one script - send us your best!
- We only accept electronic submissions in Word format.
- We are looking for short plays that run NO LONGER THAN 10 MINUTES.
- The title page should include the playwright's name, the character list and a brief synopsis of the play.
- The title page must also include the company's contact name (if different from playwright), address, phone number and email address.
- Plays should contain no more than 4 characters.
- Technical requirements should be fairly simple. Your set should also be minimal. We are interested in your stories, not your scenery or special effects. A script that presents itself as tech or set heavy will not be selected for the festival.
- Musicals, children’s shows, and any unsolicited longer one-act or full-length plays are not accepted and will not receive a response.
- If selected, each company is responsible to cast and rehearse their own play.
- A tech person will be provided by HamilTEN for the tech rehearsal and performances.
Companies are not offered any financial compensation for their involvement in HamilTEN, however the festival is a great format to showcase your creative talents.
HamilTEN is a non-Equity venture and has no association with Canadian Actors' Equity Association.
We look forward to reading your submissions!
