Oakton is seeking original submissions from aspiring Illinois community college playwrights for the opportunity to have their work brought to life at the Oakton Performing Arts Center next summer.

Play On, an annual state-wide playwriting competition, is open to all community college students. The contest requires the submission of a one-act script of any genre that has never been previously produced. Scripts must be 10 pages or less and written in 12-point font. Include a cover page with your name, phone number, mailing address, e-mail address, and school name. Only one submission is allowed per student. Winners will be notified in March and works will be performed in July.

The deadline has been extended to Wednesday, March 21, 2012. Scripts can be e-mailed to Kate Tillotson at  katet@oakton.edu. Include your full name, phone number, mailing address and the name of your school.
