The Northwest Ten Festival of Ten-Minute Plays returns in 2019 for the 11th year running, continuing on its mission to become the premiere ten-minute play festival of the Pacific Northwest.

"Proud to have produced quality theatre for ten years in Eugene, and grateful to all those who have participated in this thrilling enterprise, including our co-producers at OCT... This celebration is a tribute to Eugene itself and its spirit of collaboration and inclusion in the arts."

Script submissions for the Northwest Ten Festival of Ten-Minute Plays are accepted annually from September 1 through October 31, with auditions taking place in late January. Submission guidelines and audition announcements for each year are posted online as they become available.  Submissions for the 2019 Festival will open in September 2018.

All community members are welcome to audition for the NW10 Festival each year. With approximately 20-25 roles available each festival, this is a great opportunity to meet and work with lots of other local artists. Auditioners are asked to prepare a one-minute, contemporary monologue (any genre) and a joke. Auditions are by appointment in the morning, with callbacks in the afternoon. Those who have acted in previous NW10 Festivals are asked to RSVP but do not need to attend the general auditions in the morning.

Audition information for the 2019 Festival will be posted here as it becomes available.
