JM Drama Presents

The ACTOne Play Festival

The ACTOne Play Festival, which features one-act plays by local writers, will be happening next year on June 8-10, 2017! There is currently a call for submissions of one-act plays due by November 21, 2016 which can be sent to It can be in its final stages or on the first draft – any submissions are welcome. Selected plays will be workshopped and developed with dramaturge Gary Kirkham, and will be performed on stage! Whether you’re an aspiring or an established author, this is a great opportunity to have your work shown.

The festival, now in it’s fifth consecutive year of performance, first began in 2003-2005 before going on hiatus. It is known for showcasing local playwrights and performers, rather than reaching out to other parts of the world. It also encourages youth to have a chance at developing their skills. Last year, plays were written by Keith Hazzard, Scarlet Fountain, and Emma Tseronis – the latter two of which were high school students. ACTOne is a breathtaking experience, with plays carefully selected and performances full of energy and soul.

Don’t miss out on this show, and for those writers out there; get your plays submitted! A call for directors, actors, designers, and stage crew will be sent out early 2017.
