Submissions Being Accepted For Play Writing Festival

Posted 1/18/2018


For the second year in a row, members of the local communities can exercise their creativity and storytelling abilities through play writing with Hesston College Theatre’s “Pen to Paper to Performance” play writing festival. 

Submissions for the 10-minute play festival will be accepted through March 16. Eight winning submissions will be notified March 23 and will be produced in the final showcase event April 27 and 28. Playwrights of winning submissions will receive a percentage of the box office earnings.

“Last year was really successful, and we ended up with more submissions than expected for a first-time event,” said Hesston College Theatre Director Rachel Jantzi. 

“People have already been asking if they can contribute again this year, and we’ve had interest from new writers as well. I want this to be an annual event, so I’m excited that people are interested and wanting to participate. It’s important to offer an outlet to people who want to express themselves and have a voice but don’t want to do it through performance.”
