MAGNET THEATER’S VERY OWN 10-MINUTE PLAY FESTIVAL
If “write more” was your New Year’s Resolution — you’re in luck! We are looking for five original comedic plays to produce for our 10-Minute Play Festival, and submissions are now OPEN! Instructions and submission guidelines below.
Are you a sketch writer looking to try something new? A playwright looking for more exposure? A random internet user who stumbled across this page? Anyone and everyone is encouraged to submit. Please send us your best 10-minute play (seriously, no more than 10 minutes) and stay tuned for auditions at the end of February, as well as Magnet Theater’s Very Own 10-Minute Play Festival on March 19th and 26th!
HOW TO SUBMIT
il.com with the subject line, “10-Minute Submission: <YOUR NAME>”.
Please include the following information in the body of the email (and keep answers short!): Name; What comedy theater you are associated with (if any); Whether you have an sketch or playwriting experience (it’s fine if the answer is no!); Why you wanted to be a part of Magnet Theater’s Very Own 10-Minute Play Festival.
Attach your play to the email as a PDF. This is important. We won’t read any other format.
Only one submission per person. Send us your best work!
The plays really do need to be under 10 minutes. That means no more than 11 pages, not including the cover page. We will not read past the 11th page.
We are looking for NEW plays! Please don’t send anything that has already been produced.
All submissions must be in by February 19th, 10:00 pm EST. Submissions will not be accepted or considered after this time.
Notifications of selection will go out a few days after submissions close.
All authors agree to permit the Magnet Theater to produce their submitted play if the theater should wish to do so. Authors retain copyright and full ownership of their plays.
Diversity applicants strongly encouraged to submit!

ANNOUNCING: The Magnet Theater’s Very Own 10-Minute Play Festival
Calling all playwrights and actors and anyone who has ever wanted to try playwriting and acting! Magnet Theater is proud to announce that in 2017, it will host its first 10-Minute Play Festival. The 10-Minute play is a distinctly American artform all about heart and words and barebones theater — concepts that have always had a home at the Magnet Theater.
Starting in January 2017, we will be calling for submissions of original, 10-minute comedic plays — so get cracking! Are you a sketch writer looking for a new challenge? Do you have a great story to tell? Is “writing more” one of your New Year’s resolutions? Now is your chance. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to submit!
A panel of Magnet community members will read the submissions and select a total of five plays, so get excited, because auditions for these plays will then be held at the end of February. Are you an improviser who wants to try some honest-to-goodness theater? Are you an actor looking for a new show? Is “doing one thing that scares you” one of your New Year’s resolutions? Now is your chance! (Well, the end of February will be your chance.) These auditions are open to anyone and everyone!
All of this will culminate in the debut performance of our five original shows at Magnet Theater’s Very Own 10-Minute Play Festival, Sunday March 19th and 26th, at 7:30pm! We are so excited to stretch our muscles a little bit, try something new, and showcase all the amazing talent the Magnet Theater has to offer!
