Last fall, Nebraska playwrights submitted their works for the first annual Yorkshire Playhouse Playwriting Competition. This spring, two of those Playwrights are having their one-act plays produced on our stage. You could be a part of creating these original works, directed by the authors who wrote them.

Note: These plays will be cast early and likely have around a 2 to 2 1/2 week rehearsal period, beginning sometime around April 29th. Exact rehearsal schedule is up to the play’s director, and a tentative rehearsal schedule will be available at the auditions.

No experience or preparation needed! Auditions will likely consist of cold reads and some improv but exact process is at discretion of the director.  We will be holding auditions April 5th 6:30PM - 8:00PM & April 6th 10:00AM - 12:00PM. Looking forward to seeing you there!
