CALLING ALL PLAYWRIGHTS!Confetti Fest is an original short play festival that seeks to develop and highlight local playwrights. We are seeking plays written by Capital Region residents to be considered for participation in a play development process and our 17th annual short play festival in October 2021. Confetti Fest is Downtown Albany’s longest running non-professional original works festival. Previous Confetti Fest shows have been chosen to perform at the TANYS (Theatre Association of New York State) and ESTA (Eastern States Theater Association) Festivals and have won awards for acting, directing, writing, and technical achievements. While we are anticipating the ability to stage these shows with a limited audience in the Fall, due to the unpredictable nature of COVID, we are also allowing for the possibility that the performance may be digital in nature. We hope that all applicants understand the uncertainty of these times and our commitment to releasing a quality product that does not risk the health of our collaborators.Confetti Stage believes in supporting the improvement and development of an artist's skills through the production process, and we extend this philosophy to script development for playwrights prior to the rehearsal period. The aim of this process is to help festival playwrights further explore their scripts by meeting with each other and offering mutual feedback after a table read. Playwrights who submit their work to Confetti Fest 17 can expect and must agree to participate in this script development period during the summer 2021 months prior to rehearsals starting in August 2021. ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED OR POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN April 15, 2021.SUBMISSIONS MUST BE:● Less than 25 minutes long. Judges WILL read selected plays out loud to get a sense of the length. If your play goes over, an agreement to shorten the length before auditions will be mandatory to your play's acceptance. Confetti Stage reserves the right to eliminate a play from the festival if this guideline is not followed. Playwrights will be encouraged to work with their playwright peers and directors in finding ways to trim● Typed In 12-pt, Times New Roman font● Applicable to our mission statement (see below)● An original work by a playwright currently local to the Capital Region● Works that have NOT been previously produced are strongly encouraged.

This past year, we were challenged with finding new ways to bring that theater to you, and we answered with wonderful new art.
