TEN FOR ALL

March 18th – March 20th, 2022

Civic Theatre is pleased to announce its second annual Ten For All ten-minute playwriting festival. Civic Theatre offers something for everyone in this celebration of West Michigan playwrights.

Back for its second year, the Ten For All festival will once again present original 10-minute plays written by West Michigan playwrights. In 2021, the inaugural festival received over 50 submissions for plays in four different categories. These plays were anonymously read and scored, then adjudicated by local theatre experts and media and business leaders. The top plays in each category were performed live on stage at the Meijer Majestic Theatre, and audience members voted to give one playwright the coveted “Audience Choice” award. The festival will be bigger and better in 2022, and we’re excited to see what wonderful scripts our local talent can create for us to enjoy.

Rating pending based on submitted content.
