Colonial Players of Annapolis
2016-17 Promising Playwrights Competition
A biennial contest open to unpublished plays from playwrights who live in Washington D.C. or in one of the 13 colonies that became the United States.
The winning play earns a $1,000 cash prize and will be the focus of a June workshop weekend at the theater.
The weekend culminates with a rehearsed reading of the play, which will be free and open to the public.
Entries will be judged blindly, meaning the names of authors will not be revealed to members of the judging committee at any point in the process.
For the first time this year, no paper submissions will be accepted.
| Opens December 2nd
A traditional British pantomime
A tale of sorcery, skulduggery and romance featuring a Princess in Distress who must be rescued from the Evil Wizard, Ravenclaw,
with the help of Merlin, King Arthur and his Queen, Merlin’s handsome apprentice, a Knight, (and Day!)
and of course you, the audience, whose cheers for the good guys and boos for the bad guys will spur on the rescuers.
See a Dragon, (don’t) see an invisible Cat. See the glittering costumes, listen to the tender and rousing songs,
marvel at the dancing, groan at the jokes. It’s all here. FUN for the Whole Family.
It’s PANTO time again!!
