New Works Playwright Competition / November 25


Aspiring and established playwrights residing in Kansas or in the Kansas City area (Jackson, Clay, Platte, or Cass counties).

Olathe Civic Theatre Association (OCTA) will host its second annual New Works Playwright Competition, a unique opportunity for local playwrights to get their name out in the community and have a chance to see a workshop performance of their production on the OCTA stage!

Submissions will consist of a 10-15 minute teaser for a full-length play and should be performance ready. Our patrons will be invited to a weekend long event showcasing five finalists, and will vote on the new work they wish to see workshopped as a full-length version on the OCTA stage. Only submissions that have not previously been produced will be considered.
