Pistarckle Puts Out Call for Plays for New Playwrights Festival

139

An individual who has a passion for writing plays now has a chance to have his or her original play presented on a professional community theater stage. Pistarckle Theater is reaching out to all Virgin Islands resident playwrights to submit a new play that has not been previously produced or staged.

There are two categories for submitting a play: Adults 16 and up; Children 15 and under.

Playwrights may submit one act to full length plays. Past participants are welcome. An original play must be submitted by Friday, March 17. Selected submissions will be presented during the 2017 New Playwright Festival at Pistarckle Theater on Saturday, May 20. Please mail or hand deliver two printed copies with the playwright’s full name, e-mail address and contact phone number to: Pistarckle Theater, 4126 Anna’s Retreat (Tillett Gardens), St. Thomas, VI 00802.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
