Call for Submissions: The Magnetic Theatre One-Act Play Festival

February 1 - February 28


The Magnetic Theatre’s second annual One Act Play Festival is scheduled for June 11-26, 2021. Submissions are free and open to all local playwrights with plays 5-15 minutes long!

The Magnetic Theatre is accepting script submissions through February 28th for our second annual One Act Play Festival.


Please limit your cast to a maximum of six actors

Scripts with minimal set, costume and prop requirements are preferred

We are not considering Theatre for Young Audiences at this time

We will not accept Screenplays or Musicals at this time

The Magnetic Theatre tends to produce plays that have not received major/recent productions in the Asheville area. We respond primarily to plays with a sure command of language, that are accessible to a diverse and discerning audience, and clear dramatic action that truly uses the resources of live theater.

If you wish to submit a play for consideration, please include a complete manuscript, bio, resume, and any other supporting materials (e.g. reviews) that might help pique our interest in you and your work.

To submit, visit our submissions page
