Sarasota theater looking for new short plays

  If you can write a play in the next couple of months about some people who are middle-aged or older, it might get presented by The Players Theatre. 
  The Sarasota theater troupe will produce a Senior Play Reading Festival Oct. 12-13. The festival is looking for non-published plays, between one and 10 minutes long, revolving around characters who are least 45 years old. 
  The festival is accepting entries through July 31.
  Send entries to The Players, 838 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34236, Attn: SSS Play Reading Festival. The titles of the winning plays will be posted on The Players website by Sept. 6. 

   For information, call 941-365-2494 or visit

Here are some guidelines: 

-- Playwrights have to live in Florida
-- Keep in mind that the actors are all 55 or older.
-- No more than eight performers in any play.   
-- Manuscripts must be typed and bound.
-- Include a biography of the playwright.
-- No more than three scripts per playwright.
-- No musicals.
