Once again, we are ESPECIALLY SEEKING women playwrights/ composers/ lyricists for the International CringeFest.  Get those "bad" musicals to us right away!  For over 5 years, NY Artists Unlimited has been presenting the International CringeFest®, including Bad Plays Festival® and Bad Musicals Festival®. The '09 festival at the Producers' Club was the biggest one yet, attracting local theatre-goers, tourists, Broadway producers, agents, and major media, including The New York Times, New York magazine, TimeOut, 7:00 TV News with Chuck Scarborough, WNBC and WCBS Radio.  Liz Smith wrote up the last Bad Musicals Festival® 3 times.  Wanted are scripts that are REALLY GOOD, HIGHLY ENTERTAINING, NICE 'n NAUGHTY, e.g., politically incorrect, political satire, bad language/ puns, or material otherwise frowned upon by "polite society."  Musicals vie for the Golden Pineapple, Silver Tomato, and Bronze Banana.  5 to 45 mins., produced/ unproduced, musical comedy or plays with music.  Sorry, we cannot accept electronic submissions because all scripts are read aloud 2-3 times by professional actors before decisions made.  If selected, your work receives 3-4 fully-produced performances, a director, cast, crew, and close supervision.  No fees.  Guidelines/ app available on website:  www.NYartists.org.  Submissions will NOT be accepted from applicants who have not read guidelines and filled out application form.  Deadline: 1/31/09.  Response:  by 5/01/09.  If you have further questions, please email:  Melba@NYartists.org.
