Deadline Extended for New Playwrights Festival Submissions to March 31

Virgin Islands playwrights have been given an extension to submit their plays to Pistarckle Theater: March 31.  Children and adults who have a passion for writing plays may submit an original play for consideration to be presented on a professional community theater stage.  All Virgin Islands resident playwrights may submit a new play that has not been previously produced or staged. 

There are two categories for submitting a play: 

(A) Adults 16 and up

(B) Children 15 and under 

Playwrights may submit one act to full length plays.  Past participants are welcome.  Selected submissions will be presented during the 2017 New Playwright Festival at Pistarckle Theater.
