Chicago’s WildClaw Theatre Company has put out a call for scripts for their third annual DEATHSCRIBE Radio Horror Play Festival. Hit the jump for details and info on how to get involved!
The good folks at WildClaw sent along this message for all you creatively inclined Fango fans out there:
“Are you a horror fan? Got a creepy idea for a story? Well, listen to this:
WildClaw Theatre, Chicago’s only year-round horror theatre company, is now accepting radio scripts for its 3rd Annual DEATHSCRIBE Radio Horror Play Festival. Deadline for submissions is October 15, 2010.
What freaks you out? Bugs? Ghosts? Serial killers? The past? The future? Death itself? How about life itself? WildClaw wants to hear it…and then we want to share it with the world.
We are looking for 10-minute scripts from horror fans the world-over that are genuinely scary, imaginative, chilling, intelligent, suspenseful, horrific, or downright grotesque. No restrictions as to content or tone, but keep in mind that WildClaw is a Horror Theatre. We take our horror seriously, and so should you.
Shape your fear into a 10-minute radio play and send it to WildClaw at email@example.com. If it freaks us out as well, you’ll see (and hear) it performed live at this year’s DEATHSCRIBE showcase event, a one-night-only extravaganza of live performances of original short radio plays, written by horror enthusiasts from around the globe! With live musical accompaniment, live foley artists, special guest directors, Chicago’s finest actors, and a celebrity panel to judge the best of the fest! (Audio clips from previous DEATHSCRIBE festivals are available on iTunes or right here.)
So, if you have a dandy little campfire tale to share—and you know you do—visit WildClaw Theatre for submission rules and regulations. Likewise, if you know someone who should be tossing his or her bloody hat in the ring, please forward this info along. Submission deadline is October 15, 2010 at midnight, so everyone get scribbling!”
