Want to submit your play to the One Acts?  This year, the play committee plans on selecting six different plays to be apart of our friendly competition. Keep in mind that your play should be no more than ten minutes, and the easier the set- the better. Once you have written your masterpiece, submit your script to the following email: The deadline to submit your play is December 7th! If your script is chosen, you as the playwright- will receive two complimentary tickets to the show.

Don’t want to act on stage but want to get involved in being one of the six directors? Send us your Directing Resume to the following email: No experience necessary!!

The One Acts Festival is a people’s choice contest. That means the audience are the judges. The play that has the highest total dollar amount, wins the contest of bragging writes. This is our fundraising event so the contest winnings are donated to Allegan Community Players next summer musical production.
