Write a Melodrama Celebrating 100 Years!

Did you know…? The Mantorville Opera House will celebrate its
100th Birthday in 2018!

And we’re calling all playwrights to help us celebrate! We’d like to do our entire 2018 Summer Melodrama Season based on stories about the Opera House!

We’re looking for new, unpublished and unperformed scripts that will feature our grand Opera House and its history in some capacity. (Ghosts? Speakeasy? Outlandish bar with pink elephants painted on the ceilings? These are just a few things from our beloved Opera House’s amazing history!)

Write a new play that celebrates the history of the Mantorville Opera House, and submit it to the MTC for review and judging. Entries must be received by January 15, 2018. Email your submission to MantorvilleTheatre@yahoo.com (Make sure you receive a confirmation email; we can’t guarantee it was received unless you get that response!)

If you have any questions, email us for answers at MantorvilleTheatre@yahoo.com! We can’t wait to see what our wonderful creative playwrights invent for this once-in-a-lifetime event!
