Local Playwrights Staged Reading Series

The Theatre at the Imperial Centre will present the “Local Playwrights Staged Reading Series” as a new program this fall. Local playwrights in the Eastern North Carolina region are asked to submit their original works, i.e. Full Length or One-Act Plays, to be read and judged by committee. The chosen works will be given a staged reading on the Theatre at the Imperial Centre stage during the First Friday events in October and November 2018.

Call for Plays
This competition is open to all playwrights in the Eastern North Carolina region. All entries must be original works. We will accept full-length, one-act, and ten-minute plays. Please limit full-length plays to 90 pages or less. Submissions will be accepted beginning August 1, 2018, and continue through August 22, 2018.

Submissions may be made by emailing manuscripts to brooke.edwards@rockymountnc.gov or by mailing hard copies to The Theatre at the Imperial Centre, Attn: Brooke Edwards, 270 Gay Street, Rocky Mount, NC 27804.

Call for Actors
Local actors wanting to participate in the staged readings may contact Brooke Edwards by email at brooke.edwards@rockymountnc.gov. Roles will be dependent upon the selected manuscripts.
