1/31/2013 Rocky Mtn. Voices competition seeks entries from playwrights

The Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts announces its 15th annual New Rocky Mountain Voices competition.

New Rocky Mountain Voices is a program dedicated to showcasing new works by playwrights in the Rocky Mountain States.

A panel of jurors from the local and regional theater community will review submissions and select, anonymously, the winning plays. Those plays will be performed on the Westcliffe Center’s Jones Theater stage September 6 and 7.

Cast members will be drawn from the local actors’ group, the Westcliffe Center Players. An experienced director will be chosen to mount the plays.

A special invitation to view the winning plays will be sent to directors and producers of other Colorado theater companies.

In addition to seeing their plays produced, the winning playwrights will be awarded cash prizes of $200 each for winning one act plays and $100 each for winning ten minute plays, along with certificates acknowledging their achievement.

 The 2012 competition’s winning playwrights were Jim Lord of Cedar City, Utah; Leonard Madrid of Albuquerque, N.M.; Susan May Pelto of Pueblo; Maggie Romigh of Las Vegas, N.M. and Josh Wagner of Missoula, Mont.
