CALL FOR SCRIPTS for MASC’s Biennial Short play Fest:


Plays must be 20 minutes or less. Plays can be original works or established works.

Plays may be presented as script-in-hand (MASC can provide readers) or fully staged works.

If you bring a fully staged work, you would have to rehearse on your own.

There will be one rehearsal, the day of the Festival, in the venue with minimal set (one table, two chairs).

Following each play, there will be a feedback session, focused on constructive critique.

There is no fee to participate. You will not get any compensation for your participation.

The Festival will be March 7th at the Marshall-Lyon County Library. Rehearsal starts at 10am. Showtime is 7pm.

MASC may choose a show from this Festival to participate in the statewide Fast*Fest in St. Cloud in August. To submit your entry or if you have questions, contact Bob Schwoch by Email at bob.schwoch@smsu.edu or

regular mail: MASC, P.O. Box 321, Marshall, MN 56258. Deadline for submissions is February 21st.
