Call for Theatrical Works: The ONE Festival

Caicedo Productions Corp officially announced requests for submissions for their annual The ONE Festival, now in its 9th year, which showcases non-published theatrical works by solo artists. Submissions are currently being accepted until February 1, 2014. The festival seeks the best of local New York City based and international actors for a one person performance where nightly audiences vote for their favorite festival participant. The program responds to the need for sharing new voices of emerging playwrights, while encouraging intercultural understanding and public interest. The festival is designed for multi-ethnic audiences and is staffed by experienced and skilled directors, producers and writers.

The winner will receive a $1000 cash prize and a full theatrical production of the winning solo show. Only finalists with 100 votes or more will qualify for the cash prize. The performance with the highest votes will be the ONE winner!

"With the Latino artistic community increasingly witnessing disparities in its representation, especially as writers, this program has significant importance in the universe of our industry" claimed veteran actor Nelson Landrieu, LATEA's executive director. Though targeting Latinos "The ONE Festival" is open to ALL emerging writers/performers, regardless of their ethnic backgrounds. The Festival's beauty is demonstrating the creative talent from all walks of life, added Veronica Caicedo, the festival's CEO/Founder and an accomplished independent filmmaker and director/producer in theater.

The only criterion for submission is that the written piece be a non published theatrical work. Submission guidelines for The ONE Festival 2014 can be found on The ONE Festival website: www.theonefestival.com
