2015 AOS Festival

Season 9 Logo

TRG’s ActOne Series Festival:
We are holding an open call for One Act Scripts & Directors

Submission Deadline: Jan 1, 2015

Playwrights and Directors Wanted

The AOS was developed to provide a venue and a voice to writers. Once the pieces are selected, if needed, local playwrights will have the opportunity to work with a dramaturge to hone their script before it goes into production, and they will have the opportunity observe rehearsal. The process culminates in two evenings of performances, when the writers get the opportunity to see their works come to life, local actors show their stuff on stage and the San Antonio community gets the opportunity to celebrate the work of their neighbors, friends and promising new theatre voices.

Our next AOS Performance is – May 8 & 9, 2015

Email: actoneseries@thereniassanceguild.org
Please put the name of your play and your name in the Subject box.
In the email please include:
• Cover Letter, including your contact information
• Play Genre and Synopsis
• Cast breakdown
• Script in word or PDF format
• List of previous productions/publishing (do not include readings)
• Any other pertinent information
SUGGESTIONS: These are one acts, not TV shows. The focus should be the writing and the acting, not set pieces or scene changes. Plays with extensive technical requirements will be considered, but those with fewer demands will receive stronger consideration. Keep in mind this is an Act Series, so show should be no longer than 30 minutes, the shorties being 5 minutes.
