Clarksville, TN – Ricky Steven Young Jr., the Founder and Artistic Director of the Fronkensteen Experimental Theatre Group announces that they will be holding their first ever open submissions by local playwrights.
“Open Submissions open the doors to everyone in the community to share their work to us,” says Young, “Fresh voices always make for greater theatre and it has been our mission to share those voices with the community.” Any playwrights that send in a new play to by November 30th are guaranteed to have their work considered for its next season.
Full length plays which are usually one hour or longer will be considered for one of five slots of staged readings. One Act Plays which can be either ten to sixty minutes long will be considered for a full production. All playwrights will be notified directly by Fronkensteen about whether or not their play was selected by December Tenth.
“We will also try our hardest to give each play direct criticism whether or not we decide to produce it. And every Fronkensteen Production has a question and answer session at the end with the playwright so that they can receive feedback on their work.”
Fronkensteen has prided itself for maintaining the directive that playwrights need feedback and recognition for their work.
“And this year we want to do even more,” Says Young, “from inviting more professionals from the community and beyond to offering more opportunities to develop new work we are striving to make our second season even better.
