Valley Players Solicit Entries for Vermont Playwrights Award 

State of the Arts

The Valley Players is a small theater group in Waitsfield, but it is thinking bigger — Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine — for its annual Vermont Playwrights Award. Apparently, that means presented in Vermont, even if the recipient lives in a neighboring state. A $1000 award goes to a “full-length, nonmusical play suitable for production by a community theater company,” which must not have been previously produced. The 34-year-old Valley Players, in fact, reserve the right to produce the winning work themselves. Last year’s winner was Michael Nethercott of Guilford, Vt., for his play Our Enemy’s Cup.

The prize money comes from the Audrey Mixer Endowment Fund, a memorial to the late actor and Mad River Valley resident, and is awarded by her husband, Richard Mixer. Deadline for application: Monday, February 25.

For entry information, call Sharon Kellermann at 583-6767 or 583-2774.
