The Cap & Bells Board is thrilled to be announcing one of our Winter Study Projects: The 10-minute Play-off. Instead of the usual one-acts, we hope to produce 6 ten-minute (or less!) plays at the end of Winter Study. We’re excited about this project because it’ll give aspiring directors and performers the chance to work with Cap & Bells in a low-stress environment.
Until December 27th the Board will be looking for proposals from interested directors. Easy and simple, find a ten-minute play you’re excited about and direct it. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a play proposal form. Your proposal should include: the title of your ten-minute play, a brief summary, and the number of actors you’ll need. If you are a writer and have a ten-minute play you’ve written, you can propose your play–if you are willing to direct it yourself–or find an interested director to work on it with you. If you’re interested in directing, please get in touch with Noah as soon as possible, he can direct you to some great anthologies of ten-minute plays and suggest a few that would be great to work on specifically. Before we return to campus, the Board will announce the 6 selected pieces and set an audition time in the beginning of Winter Study. The plays will rehearse for the next two weeks and perform in the final week of winter study, exact date TBD.
The most important thing is that we need directors! Please get involved, take a chance and try something new, or, if you’re a returning director, hone your skills even more. The plays will be performed either in the Directing Studio or Greylock Dinning on a shoe-string budget–Recession Sessions style–and they will be awesomesauce.
