Tipping Point Theatre Seeks 10 Minute Play Submissions For Sandbox Play Festival
Tipping Point Theatre is calling for short play submissions to their 8th annual play writing competition, the Sandbox Play Festival. Submissions will be evaluated by Producing Artistic Director James R. Kuhl to select which scripts move on to the finals. The selected scripts will be performed in late 2018. Attending crowds will vote for Audience Favorite and a panel will judge a first and second place winner. Tipping Point's Sandbox Play Festival is designed to encourage and increase exposure for Michigan theatre artists. Tipping Point Theatre employs roughly 90 artists per year and is the midst of their 11th season as a professional equity theatre. Tipping Point is also searching for actors and directors that are looking for opportunities to "get in the sand" and work on creating new theatre. This is an excellent opportunity for actors, directors, and playwrights looking to showcase their work.
