Unique opportunity with a Colorado theatre program

I've recently been introduced to Explorati Teens in Colorado. They are looking for a few plays written by teenagers that will be used as performance pieces by their summer camps. Below is the information that I received. Take a look and see if it might be a fit for you. Please contact Explorati Teens directly with any questions.

Happy writing!
Explorati Teens Film & Theater Camp is looking for teen-written one-acts!

Explorati Teens is producing our first ever Film & Theater Camp and we want it to be a totally teen-driven experience! If you've got a one-act under 30 minutes with no more than 10 characters, we want to see it! This is your chance to be produced by the award-winning Bas Bleu Theatre Company, and connect with other teens who love the arts like you do!

You'll keep your rights, of course, and if we select your play, we'll pay you a $25 performance fee. Please send your scripts no later than July 1st to Trai Cartwright, Executive Director at Check us out at
