History the Ten Minute Play Festival
We started this festival in August 2014 as the 6x10 Festival with just 6 plays that were submitted to us. Starting in 2015, we started asking for submissions and selected the plays through a blind reading process. This means that the reading committee does not know who wrote the plays or where they are from when they are reading them and voting on which ones to do.
Since we first started the festival, we have increased the number of plays produced each year to 8-10. And we have added performance days due to audience demand. In 2018 we received over 400 scripts from 35 states and 7 different countries!
We plan to continue growing the festival as it is a wonderful opportunity for playwrights to see their plays produced while giving directors and actors the opportunity to work with new material that has never been performed in our area.
