Those hoping to enter the 5th annual Lake Tahoe WordWave One-Act Play Competition at Valhalla Tahoe have three more weeks to submit their entry.
The deadline for entry in the competition is 5 p.m. July 19. Plays can be submitted online at http://www.tahoewordwave.com. Manuscripts should have a running time of no more than 60 minutes, and writers can enter multiple works, according to a press release. There is a $25 submission fee for each play.
Three winners of the play competition will each receive a $500 cash prize and a two-night stay to see their work directed and produced as a staged reading at the historic Valhalla Boathouse Theatre at the Tallac Historic Site in South Lake Tahoe on Sept. 14.
Winners also receive a welcome dinner and the opportunity for a pre- or post-show discussion with the audience.
“As a playwright, I couldn’t ask for a better setting to see my work read and discussed,” Mathew Widman, a winner of the 2016 WordWave competition, said in the release. “Wordwave is a wonderful festival for writers and for everyone who is fortunate enough to attend this amazing Lake Tahoe event.”
