WHAT: Five & Dime Drama Collective is looking for new (not previously produced) short dramatic performance scripts that are compelling and thought provoking as well as entertaining. These could either fit a 10 minute format or a one act (20-30 minutes).  We would also welcome a package proposal that includes author, director and cast with rehearsals held in a location closer to you if you are not in Eureka Springs. Several works will be presented, either as staged readings or productions with limited set, props, etc.

WHEN: Deadline for script submission is September 1. Selections will be made by about September 15. The selected scripts will be performed in Eureka Springs at the Five & Dime Drama Collective Fall Performance Series in late October or early November, 2017. (Venue has yet to be determined.)

WHO: Authors must live, work, or study in Northwest Arkansas and must be willing and able to participate in the development of the work collaboratively as part of the creative team. This will involve attending at least the first several rehearsals in Eureka Springs (unless otherwise arranged).

HOW: Any of the standard stage formats are acceptable. Title and author's name should appear on each page. Contact information should be included in the cover email. Scripts should be electronically submitted in .doc or .pdf format to fiveanddimedrama@gmail.com.

OPEN FORUM: On Thursday, August 3rd starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Library Annex, 192 Spring Street in Eureka Springs. We will discuss the kind of scripts that fit best with our mission and format. Producer, Director, and creative team from past performances will be available for questions. Whether you want to write a script or consider joining the creative team, please join us for this informative session.
