The Contest!

Have you ever wanted to get all of your friends together to perform a piece the way YOU wanted to perform it? Now is your chance.

The RED Ohio Theatre Festival is a nationwide competition between groups of young performers (10-22 yrs old). Each group will perform a play/musical/performance piece. No group performance shall exceed 45 minutes performance time. No piece shall use more than 10 minutes to set and 10 minutes to strike. These can be plays/musicals/pieces that already exist that you can modify, or you can write your own! This is a GREAT place to try out your own works. The plays are adjudicated and advancing groups are announced and individual awards given. Groups receive an evaluation form and an oral critique. There are also solo opportunities available for musical theatre singers and monologues. Solo acts must not exceed 4 minutes.

Festival Date: Friday, September 30th from 5 to 9PM
