We are accepting submissions for our 2020 Ten Minute Play Festival! This year's theme is "You've Got To Be Kidding." All plays must be submitted to our e-mail address 10minute@spectralsisters.com by 11:59 pm on Sunday, March 15th.


We will be holding another reading for our entries before they're submitted on February 15th at 10:00 am on the second floor of the Rapides Foundation Building. We do this so that our writers can hear how their plays sound before they're finalized and so that they can receive critical feedback on their work.

The annual Spectral Sisters' Ten Minute Play Festival will be held June 11th- 14th at the Hearn Stage in Alexandria. Each year Spectral Sisters highlights local playwrights and gives them the opportunity to see their works staged live. This year’s theme is “You've Got To Be Kidding.”

Come to any showing to see all the plays selected this year.  Tickets are only $12 for general admission, and we offer $10 tickets to students and educators with a school ID.


This year we are also offering prizes for the top three plays! The play who wins First Place will receive $100, Second Place will be awarded $75, and Third Place will get $50 as a thank you from us. 

**Please note that plays may contain adult content and might not be suitable for children.**

Want to direct, act, or assist with the play festival?  Contact Spectral Sisters  at 10minute@spectralsisters.com or by our websites contact form.
