14th Annual One Act Festival

Auditions--July 18th and 19th

Each year, Stage Door's One Act Festival provides an opportunity for playwrights to showcase their work. Several one-act plays are chosen out of hundreds and then performed. Cash prizes are awarded to the audience's favorite as well as the best script.

Each one-act play runs about 10 minutes in length. There are eight plays in total this year and quite a number of parts we are wanting to cast.

Actors are needed to make the One Act Festival a success. Come tryout and be a part of Stage Door's One Act Festival!
