If you would like to participate, please fill out the form below.
(Please know that because of the nature of this event, some of the pieces will be partly improvised and can get wacky. There may be adult language and content of a mature and sexual nature.)

HOW IT WORKS:

  • The theme is announced. The theme is “Standard Procedure.”
  • Anyone and everyone may then write a short (no longer than ten minutes) play/sketch/scene based on this theme.
  • You are invited to submit your short theatrical piece to pause@lclark.edu. The deadline for entries is (no later than) 3 p.m. Wednesday, October 14.
  • Winning entries will be posted on this page by Thursday October 15.
  • Auditions will be on Friday October 16. Those who would like to appear on stage should be at Fir Acres Theatre at 5 pm and the plays will be cast. 
  • On Sat October 17, performers will be given a two hour window for rehearsal. They’ll be directed and work with the other players.
  • That evening, 10 pm, October 17, the grand finale, all of the pieces will be performed in the Black Box at Fir Acres Theatre.

We’re sorry we can’t produce every submission, but we will choose about six plays representing quality, variety, and an interesting approach to the theme. 
The performance is ONE NIGHT ONLY: Saturday, October 17 at 10 pm. Because of the nature of this event, some of the pieces will be partly improvised and can get wacky. There may be adult language and content of a mature and sexual nature.
