ASTORIA — The Astor Street Opry Company (ASOC) announces its 2012 One-Acts and Monologues Script Competition is now open and accepting submissions until Nov. 1.

All one-act plays and monologues must be well-written, perceptive and entertaining. Comedy, drama or anything in between will be considered. The plot, character development and motivation need to be complete. Technical requirements and appropriateness will be judged and all work must be suitable for family audiences. Winners will be judged by a selected panel of theatrical experts and will be announced by Dec. 15. The winning scripts and monologues will be produced by ASOC in February 2013 for the fourth annual “New Works Festival.”

Include five copies of scripts (no originals) including a title page for each script that states names of all authors along with addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers and email addresses. Subsequent pages should include only manuscript title and page number.

By entering this contest you are stating that the script or monologue is your own work and that it has not been produced. No adaptation of the work of other authors, stage plays, monologues, short stories or screenplays will be accepted.

The author retains all other rights to his/her work. If selected for production a new rights agreement will be signed by the author and ASOC. ASOC will have the right to produce winning scripts and monologues. However, ASOC makes no commitment to produce any script. For more information, call Anne MacGregor at (503) 338-3826.
