Announcing the Winners of our Playwriting Competition
The Flint Community Players held this competition in order to celebrate up-and-coming playwrights and their plays. We hope that this contest encourages playwriting as a discipline of theatre, and promotes the production of new and original works on community theatre stages in the City of Flint, as well as the greater theatrical community of Michigan.
We would like to extend our congratulations to the following winners:
1st place - $300
Adam Carlson (Lansing) for “Waiting”
2nd place - $200
Richard Hingst (Lapeer) for “Thanks for the 24 Years”
3rd place - $100
Angie Ransdell (Pontiac) for “The Bridge”
Alex VanTol (Flint) for “The Spanish Clock”
After reading all the submissions our panel of 3 judges met and evaluated each full-length play on various criteria including but not limited to plot, characters, and even whether they would recommend it to someone else. The judges decided that despite only having three prize levels available, four of the plays submitted deserved recognition. Two plays were selected for third place because all of the judges wanted to see both recognized. Winners of the 3rd place prize will each receive the full amount of the prize.
Prizes will be awarded to each contest winner no later than May 1st.
To all those who participated, thank you. We hope you continue to pursue stage writing and hope that you will participate with us in future endeavors.
