Dear aspiring writer and/or theater aficionado: yours is a hard and thankless job, but what if we told you we found what might be your perfect breakthrough? The Methow Valley Theater in Twisp is hosting a playwright competition starting now, and any and every creative mind in Okanogan and Chelan county is invited. But this isn’t any old writing contest where they toss you a plaque and some cash at the end of it — no, there’s a much cooler prize at stake: the chance to have your play performed on the Methow Community Stage in Twisp. That’s right, the winner recieves $1,000, bragging rights for eternity, and to see their writing performed. And young writers (under 18) can win a $500 scholarship to the school and field of their choice.

The deadline for the play is May 1, 2015, but now is the time to start: all good things take time. Methow Valley Theater says that plays will be judged on the quality of their content and on entertainment value. One-man avant-garde monologue or a musical that would make Andrew Lloyd Webber proud? You decide. And when you do, you can send transcripts and entrance fees, to Methow Valley Theater, P.O. Box 114, Twisp, 98856. Entry costs $100 for adults and $50 for anyone under 18. Oh, and if the entrance fee isn’t quite in the budget, the Theater is giving out two scholarships to cover it, just send a letter on why you deserve the scholarship to the same address.
