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.
