InspiraTO playwriting contest announced

Hey folks – Just got word from our rentals manager Cate Frid that InspiraTO Artistic Director Dominik Loncar has booked the Alumnae main stage for two and a half weeks in May/June 2011 for the 6th annual InspiraTO Festival of 10-minute plays. The call for script submissions is now open – here are the details:

Contest closes Dec. 31, 2010

Canada’s leading 10-minute play festival (with over 60 10-minute plays produced to date) is calling on playwrights to submit a 10-minute play.

Sixteen 10-minute plays will be selected and performed for two weeks in Toronto, June 2011.  Cash award for first prize. No submission fee.

Thanks for our past sponsors, including the Ontario Arts Council, for supporting over 70 theatre artists (including playwrights from across Canada)!

Every minute counts!

So there you go all you playwrights/aspiring playwrights. I’ve attended the InspiraTO Festival several times, most recently one of the two sets of plays this past summer (the first year, I believe, that InspiraTO set up on the Alumnae main stage) – and the script, direction and acting work was excellent. If you’re an actor/aspiring actor, look out for auditions on the InspiraTO website – and check out the play selection and come see the shows.
