ATLANTA: Seeking Footlights Submission

Seeking Submissions: Atlanta Region Footlights Goes to Myrtle Beach!

Applications are now open for Dramatists Guild members, located in South Carolina or Georgia, who are interested in presenting a reading of their work in a Friday Night Footlights, scheduled for January 25, 2019, at Atlantic Stage in Myrtle Beach, SC. There will be two slots available: one from 7:00-8:30 pm, and the other from 9:00-10:30 pm. The readings, and any related activity such as a feedback session, must fit within the 90-minute time frame for each slot.

Please remember that the Friday Night Footlights series was established as an opportunity for DG members to gain exposure, and to develop their craft and obtain some professional credentials. With that in mind, be sure you are applying with work that is ready and can benefit from a public reading. Also, please note that the selected playwrights are responsible for the organizational elements of their respective readings, including getting a performance team and setting up the presentation format. Playwrights must also take the lead on publicizing their reading.

To apply for the January 25 Friday Night Footlights-Atlanta Style, please email your name, play title, short synopsis, telephone number, and preferred email address to JohnPatrickBray@gmail.com no later than December 20, 2018 with the subject FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTLIGHTS SUBMISSION. The first 12 names received will be the basis for a lottery drawing of the two selected playwrights and two back-ups.

Please do not contact Atlantic Stage for information about Friday Night Footlights or space details; instead, please direct all questions to Atlanta Regional Rep Pamela Turner (pturner@dramatistsguild.com) or to John Patrick Bray, who serves as an Atlanta Regional Ambassador.
