Based on popular 24-hour play festivals around the country, Imagination Stage is hosting its 6th Annual Play Off competition for middle and high school students! Participants register as teams or individuals (IStage will match you up with other individual registrants). Teams include a playwright, director, and up to six actors who work to produce a 10-minute play working from prompts given the day before. Teams are provided mentorship by Imagination Stage staff as well as access to props and costumes from Imagination Stage’s collection; they then perform in the Reeve Studio Theatre for a panel of judges comprised of theatre professionals from the DC theatre community. Friends and family are invited to attend the performance at 7:30 p.m.

Participants, especially the playwright, should be available to collaborate independently on their script the day before the event.

Registration Notes: All Registrants of The Play Off are required to fill out supplemental questions which will appear in your confirmation email for The Play Off.

Individual Registrants: Identify the role on the team you wish to play (actor, director, or playwright).
