Student Playwright Festival

Dirt Dogs Theatre Co. (DDTCo.) is seeking submissions for our Student Playwright Festival. High school seniors from the Houston metropolitan area are encouraged to submit previously unproduced one-act plays, up to 30 minutes in length for consideration. 

Between three and five submissions will be chosen with each selected playwright being awarded a $500 scholarship. The playwrights will be paired with a mentor—­a Houston-based playwright whose work has been produced locally and around the country. The mentor and students will work in tandem to fine-tune the plays and prepare them for production. The student playwrights will then be a part of the rehearsal process and will experience their words going from the page to the stage. Finally, they will be the guests of honor as their plays are performed by some of Houston’s finest actors on June 5, 2019 at the MATCH – Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston. 

Submission deadline: 11:59 PM, Feb. 28, 2019
