Playwrights from all over our area are invited to enter a short play or even a full-length play (For full-length plays, playwrights select a 10-minute section.) for consideration for our public reading with feedback. Playwrights are encouraged to use this friendly and supportive setting to hear their new plays read aloud by actors in front of an audience for the first time. Audience feedback will help playwrights edit and complete their plays.This notice is not only for playwrights, but actors as well. If you want to be an actor/reader, please email me at eatonrl@miamioh.edu and I will put you on the list. I will choose a cast according to the needs of most of the plays’ character requirements.

This reminder is really late. Sorry. But I’ve already received play entries and I’m so excited to see what else will come in. I’m extending the deadline doe submissions for an extra week (February 14) because I’m so freaking late with this reminder.Can’t wait to read more plays and work with our wonderful actors.

Thank you. See you soon.

KID SIMPLE Runs April 11-14

MURT_Kid Simple logoKID SIMPLE
Miami University Regionals Theatre
April 11-14
Phelps Hall Studio Theatre [Hamilton]

Moll, a girl who invents things, wins the science fair with a machine for hearing sounds that can’t be heard. But when a shapeshifting Mercenary steals the invention (and her heart), she must embark on a quest to save noise as we know it. Accompanied by the last boy-virgin in the eleventh grade, Moll crosses chasms and rafts rivers into a world where sound is always more than what meets the ear. A quirky fable of innocence and experience, featuring live sound effects, mutinous onomatopoeia, and a host of woodsy temptations.
