PYTCo Seeks One-Act Plays for Showcase

The Penn Yan Theatre Company (PYTCo) is seeking submissions from local writers for original, one-act plays for its Playwright Showcase. 

Plays must be no longer than 30 minutes in length. Winning plays will be brought to life as staged readings on Oct. 19 at 6:00 pm at the Elks Club in Penn Yan.

Submissions are due by Sept. 1, with winners being announced on Sept. 15. The Playwright Showcase is open to playwrights of all ages, so submissions should be appropriate for an audience of all ages.

PYTCo is proud to partner with local creative writing organization Keuka Writes to support playwrights throughout the summer. Keuka Writes will be offering a playwriting basics session on July 10 and a workshop session on August 7. These events provide an opportunity for aspiring playwrights to gain valuable insights and hone their craft. Both sessions will be held at 6:00 pm at the Penn Yan Public Library. For more information and to register, email

Open auditions for actors interested in participating in the staged readings for the Showcase will be held during the week of Sept. 30. Details about the audition process will be announced later this summer.
