Podcast Contest

Write a play for TCT's Audio Footlights

​Teachers!  Your class assignment if you choose to accept it…

Write a five-minute (750-word) fictional play to be read aloud.  It can be about ANYTHING!

TCT will produce the winning works (complete with voice actors and sound effects) for TCT’s Audio Footlight’s podcast.  

Your class can work as a group or solo.  Write as a class or individually.  Have younger kids?  Teacher-facilitated stories are ok too.

Send a PDF of your finished play to:  podcast@tctcincinnati.com

Deadline:  March 15, 2019

Teachers must submit for all student applicants.  We’ll accept up to three submissions from your class.

Four (4) winners will be selected by TCT’s Staff and Teacher Committee.  Winners will be announced from the stage at TCT MainStage production of Sleeping Beauty, April 27-May 6.

This is a great activity for your class, and some outstanding recognition for your student’s portfolio for high school or college in the future.
