SRO Productions of Las Vegas, Nevada is proud to announce our 2nd Annual One-Act Playwriting Competition and Festival. We are now accepting submissions for 10 minute one acts. The guidelines are as follows:

The entrance fee is $10.00 for each play submitted. Six (6) of the entries chosen by our judges will experience a staged reading on Festival Night in late August. A panel of judges will determine the "Best of Fest" winning playwright, who will receive a $100 grand prize. Two other playwrights will earn a $50 'honorable mention' prize as well.

The deadline for submitting is by midnight on Monday, June 30th (Pacific Time).. Any script not accompanied by the entrance fee will not be considered for the festival. Please have a title page that has 1) The name of the play, 2) The name of the playwright, 3) The address, phone number and email of the playwright.
