Playwrights are invited to submit their work for consideration to be performed!  Whether you are a novice or a professional, please send us your one-act plays.  We would love to be able to showcase new work from different writers.

Both children and adult plays will be considered.  Submit a copy of your play to us by 10/15/11 at the following address: TLP-Twist, 58 Outlook Drive, Lexington, MA 02421. (If you wish to have your script returned after our review, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your script). You will be notified by 11/15/11 if your script has been accepted to be performed. Auditions for the selected shows will be in December. Performances will take place in both Lexington and Westford on the weekends of 3/9/12 and 3/16/12.  There will be three performances each weekend.  If you have any questions please contact ssjoneslex@aol.com or theatrewithatwist@gmail.com .  Sponsored by the Lexington Players and Theatre with a Twist, Inc.

The company is also holding teen auditions for their upcoming production of Anything Goes! The age-old tale of boy-meets-girl and the complications that ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than Anything Goes! This show is an amusing love story set to one of Cole Porter’s magical scores. Amazing songs include “It’s De-Lovely,”” Friendship,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “ All Through the Night,” “ Anything Goes” and” Blow, Gabriel, Blow.” It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where ANYTHING GOES!

This show is directed by Steve Koch. Auditions are for students – grades 6-12 only – and will be held at 3 Post Office Square in Acton on 10/18 and 10/19 from 7-9pm. Students will be taught a short choreographed number and do a cold reading.  Please prepare 16 bars of a song from another musical, not from this show.  Bring your music with you to auditions. Tuition based at a rate of $255 for the show.  Show dates will be January 13-15, 2012. This show is licensed by Tam’s Witmark Music Library, New York, NY.
