Marshall Area Stage Company logo

The Marshall Area Stage Company (MASC) is seeking submissions for its Seventh Biennial Short Play Festival.  The Festival will be held March 9, 2024 at the Marshall- Lyon County Library.  Submissions can be original works or published works.  If you wish to submit a published piece, royalties are the responsibility of the submitter. MASC will not pay the royalties.

Submissions can be script-in-hand readings or fully rehearsed, fully realized productions.  If you wish to submit as a script-in-hand reading, MASC can provide talented readers to bring your script to life.  If you wish to submit a full production, rehearsals and production costs are the responsibility of the submitter.  There will be one morning of rehearsal in the space on March 9th starting at 10:00 am.  The performance will be at 7:00 pm that same day.  There is no fee to participate.  You will receive no compensation for participation.  MASC may select a play from this festival to present at the statewide MACT Fast*Fest in Cloquet, MN in August.
