[ARCHIVED] Attention Aspiring Playwrights! Have Your Script Produced at the Canton One Acts Festival

This Festival will take place January 13-15, 2017 at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton, MI. It is the fourth biennial Canton One Acts Festival.

“This festival brings new plays to the Canton community and Village Theater at Cherry Hill stage. As aspiring playwrights, we looked for other venues to submit our one-act musicals, but there weren't any nearby groups organizing any competitions or festivals. Since we have been afforded the opportunity to present our new works at The Village Theater, we wanted to provide a process, venue and event to showcase other emerging playwrights of plays and musicals as well as to aspiring directors.” – Quote from TLC Productions

TLC is looking for original plays in length no longer than 12 minutes. Multiple submissions from a playwright are welcomed, however, no children shows will be considered. For a list of complete guidelines and for information on the judging process, go to
