One Act Play Festival

The Cedar Springs Community Players are hosting a One Act Play Festival in the spring of 2022.

What’s a one act play? It’s a play that can be performed in one act; specifically short plays with minimal requirements—less than 6 actors, few props, and a flexible set—so that we can perform 5 of them in the same night.

We’re seeking locally written plays to perform on stage at the Kent Theatre March 4, 5, 6.  Kids are welcome to submit plays as well! We have at least one director ready to do a play by kids and/or for kids!

Here’s how it works:

By January 3, 2022, original plays are submitted to cscommunityplayers@gmail.com with “One Act Play Submission” in the subject line.  Plays must be:

  • able to be performed in 20 minutes or less.
  • family friendly. Please do not include foul language. 
  • able to be performed by no more than 6 actors.
  • submitted in PDF format
  • able to be opened on any computer.

By January 14 our play selection committee will read each submission and choose the top 10 plays that meet the qualifications. Prize for the top 10 plays will be 2 tickets to any CSCP show in 2022.

By January 28 our play selection committee and team of directors will select the top 5 plays to be performed live at the Kent Theatre. Prizes for the top 5 plays will be gift cards to local businesses. 

Auditions will take place January 31 and Feb 1 at the Cedar Springs Library.

Rehearsal schedules will be determined by each cast and director.

Performances take place March 4, 5, and 6, 2022, at the Kent Theatre in Cedar Springs.

Playwriters pick up your pens, pencils, tablets, phones, computers, or hammer and chisels, and begin writing.  Just be sure your final play is in PDF format and submitted not later than January 3, 2022.
