Call for Submissions!
Women Who Rock 2018

In March 2018, we are producing a series of performances entitled Women Who Rock, which will highlight the music of Brenda Xu, Prom Queen and The Black Tones.

We are seeking short (5-8 min) scripts based on songs from these artists to be produced as part of this exciting series. We expect to present 4-6 pieces for each musical artist, with a total of 12-20 produced during the course of the run. Each piece will be staged at least twice.

Scripts that are chosen for production will be awarded a $40 honorarium.

Guidelines for submission:

Please submit plays in pdf form to kcmcasting@gmail.com by Monday, January 29, 2018. We will choose plays within the following week, with rehearsal set to begin February 5.
Along with your script, please include the following with your submission:

current resume/CV
in the body of your email, give the title of the song the piece is inspired by, a short synopsis (no more than 100 words) and character breakdown
You can find each artist’s catalog of songs at the following links:

https://brendaxu.bandcamp.com/

https://promqueenband.bandcamp.com/

https://soundcloud.com/theblacktones

When choosing songs, please keep to those written by the artists, not covers they may have recorded.
Some Info about our productions:

The work Playlist Seattle does is to celebrate and honor the city’s musicians. We do not attempt a literal dramatization of a song’s lyrics or story, however, we also do not stray too far from the theme or ethos of the piece. A good example would be Alice in Chains song “The Rooster”. We did not present a story about Vietnam/Jerry Catrell’s father/A giant male chicken. Instead, we explored warfare of the not-so-distant-future, based on the use of drone soldiers.

We most often do not produce our shows at traditional theatre spaces. As with any evening of one-acts, complicated sets or special effects are not typically possible. That said, if there is a key element to your story that goes beyond the barebones, we’ll be happy to see how we might make it happen within our DIY aesthetic.


If you have any questions or would like to discuss an idea before begin to craft a script, please email kcmcasting@gmail.com.
