LaBute New Theater Festival Arts and Music
Event Description:
St. Louis Actors’ Studio will produce the 7th “LaBute New Theater Festival". The Theater Festival will run at the Gaslight Theater, 358 North Boyle, home to St. Louis Actors’ Studio.

Professional and High School Submissions were accepted October through December 2018. To be considered entries had to have no more than four characters, and be crafted specifically to exploit our intimate performance space (18' x 18' stage). Changes in scenery or setting should be achievable in a few seconds and with few major set moves. Our focus is on fundamental dramaturgy: plot, character, theme.

Professional, new, previously unproduced one act play submissions (45 minutes or less) included a letter of inquiry, a synopsis and a 10-page sample from the script.

Four Winning plays by high school students will be presented in readings at 11 am on July 20 at the Gaslight Theater. Admission to the reading FREE.

Six plays were chosen: One group to be performed in the first two weeks of July, the final group in the second two weeks. “Great Negro Works of Art”, a Midwest Premiere from Mr. LaBute, will be performed every night for the run of the festival.
