The Secret Theatre Presents:
The LIC One Act Play Festival 2018
July 11th - August 2nd, 2018
Finals: August 4th, 2018

The LIC One Act Festival 2018 is a self-producing competition style one-act play festival. The plays are divided into up to six different programs. The Audience will vote for best plays. Those scores will be averaged to insure that everyone has a fair chance regardless of audience size. The top six to ten nominated plays will compete for the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Play. Best Actor wins $50, Actress $50, Director $50 and Best Play $100. As well, those plays in the Finals will be offered a chance to be non-exclusively published in The Secret Theatre's Anthology of Short Plays.

We also intend to invite the finalists to have their play published in a short play anthology. This would be a non-exclusive deal, which doesn't prevent the author from pursuing a deal with Samuel French for example and is not mandatory. We will be using the theatre's standard lighting plot and will provide you with a light and soundboard operator. In addition we will offer free 4-hour rehearsal space to each show from July 2nd - 8th, which is subject to availability and on a first come first served. Each play is responsible for providing their Director and Actors for their production.

Break a leg! Equity Showcases permitted but acts will obtain their own code; The Secret Theatre will provide Equity compliant Insurance to the productions.
