Artist’s Showcase of Atlanta Kids/Teens Writing Submissions

The Artist’s Showcase of Atlanta Kids/Teens is looking for writers for its upcoming showcase. Our adult showcase last year was a huge success with actors receiving agent
representation and other job offers. This showcase will consist of actors, ages 7 to 17, performing original scenes for some of the top agents, casting directors, producers, theatre directors, and other industry professionals.

We are looking for original scenes with a minimum of two actors and a maximum of 6 actors, mostly comedic. These scenes need to run 4-10 min. in length. This showcase will contain some singing; so if you have scenes that contain music, even group numbers, submit those as well. Your submission must be received by March 12, 2010.

If you’re interested in submitting your work(s), send an email to Shontelle Thrash at artistsshowcase@live.com to request a release form.

This form must accompany your work(s). You can use one form for all of your submissions. This gives us “non-exclusive” rights to use it for the purposes of the showcase. If someone sees the showcase and wants your scene; then by all means, get it to them. You retain full rights to your work. It also ensures that your work is original. Look over the two-page release form and let me know if you have any questions.

If your work is selected, you will be notified via email.

Showcase benefits:

• Writer’s Workshop with a renowned playwright
• Have his/her bio in the showcase program
• Receive production photos of his/her
• Have the pleasure of seeing actors perform his/her work
• Possibility of receiving other job offers.

So, dust off that computer and get to typing.

“I would like to thank Artist’s Showcase of Atlanta and its director for opening a door that many writers like me rarely get to experience. It was very exciting this pass year to see a work that I had written come to life. When a door opens with people of this caliber of dedication and commitment to the arts, we are encouraged to know the great possibilities that are there for us.”

“The showcase for me was a thrilling opportunity to see flesh and spirit imbibe what was at once my simple string of dialog. The chance to see truly talented actors and crew make real a time in this characters life real was both thrilling and expanding to me. My shows have been better since the night of the showcase, and having my family there to enjoy it with me was worth the phrase awesome.”

“I was especially honored to have my pieces
included in the showcase. I thought it was a wonderful
local venue that allowed both playwrights and actors to have their work featured. The audience responded well, and I liked the t-shirt, too. I hope this will become an
annual tradition in the city. It was great seeing rarely cast performers and the work of lesser know and produced writers for the theatre.”
