According to the Theatre Communications Group, gender-parity in the American theatre is still more a dream than a reality. Last year, most plays that made it to stage were written by male authors (62%) with most roles going to male actors (65%). PCPP is excited to promote equality with “Resilience,” a trio of one-act plays emphasizing women and their stories, with predominately female casts, scheduled for May 2018.

PCPP is accepting one-act submissions for Resilience: 3 Plays about Women, slated for May 2018. The contest is open to female writers only in southeast North Carolina. DEADLINE: January 22, 2018. Submissions should run between 25 and 45 minutes and have at least 50% women’s roles. The winning script will receive both production and a $100 award. Scripts, which should have no more than four characters, must be sent as a PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure pages are numbered and that your contact information appears on the cover sheet. Please include a brief synopsis.
Auditions for our fifth evening of staged readings on Tuesday, October 10, and Wednesday, October 11, at the Community Arts Center, 120 S. Second Street, Wilmington.
A core of talented actors, aged 20-60, is sought to portray a variety of roles in this collection of ten-minute plays revolving around the theme of Right or Wrong? PCPP is committed to diversity casting.
Actors should bring a resume and a list of potential conflicts before the performances on November 6 and 7 at the Cape Fear Playhouse. An audition form is available on the Auditions tab of this website. Actors may save time by downloading the form and filling it out ahead of the auditions. No appointment is necessary.
