Snowdance Script Submissions

OOHP accepting 2022 submissions through November 1, 2021

Over Our Head Players is accepting submissions for the "2022 Snowdance® 10 Minute Comedy Festival," now through November 1, 2021.

"Snowdance®" entry is open to original 10 minute or shorter comedies for the stage.

Winning entries will be performed together by the OOHP Snowdance ensemble in the winter of 2022. Concluding each performance, audience members can vote for their favorite individual comedy; the audience favorites will earn cash prizes for the playwright.

Entries may be sent to SNOWDANCE, c/o Sixth Street Theatre, 318 Sixth Street, Racine, Wisconsin, 53403.

Alternatively, entries may be sent by email to

Once again, we request that scripts have a maximum of three characters, and entries less than 10 minutes are actively encouraged.

Rules for the Snowdance Comedy Competition, which is open to everyone without age or geographic restriction, are relatively simple. In summary, competition is open to unpublished, 10 minute or shorter comedies free of royalty and copyright restrictions.

Musicals, adaptations, and translations will not be considered. Entries must be postmarked by November 1, 2021. The writer’s name, address, phone number, and e-mail address should be included on the title page and only the title page.

The title page should also include a cast list and a one-to-three sentence synopsis of the play.

Plays can have a cast of one to three characters; plays should be easily staged, avoiding elaborate set requirements.

Submit one typed manuscript in standard format, securely bound. Complete rules are posted on the Rules page. Any questions can be directed to Rich Smith via the box office, at 262-632-6802, or by e-mail at

Scripts will not be returned.
