New Play Festival
Christina Patramanis, Uberdirector

Saturday, September 16 at 7:30 p.m.
Coralville Center for the Performing Arts

Friday, August 11, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturday, August 12, 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Auditions will be held at the Community of Christ Church, 2121 S. Ridge Dr. in Coralville.

There will be a variety of roles for actors 16 through adult. Come to the auditions prepared to read. Sides will be provided at the auditions. This is a general casting call after which actors will be chosen for specific 10-minute plays.

Because these 10-minute plays will require minimal rehearsal time, this is a wonderful opportunity for actors who don’t have the time to devote to a full-scale production as well as folks who haven’t acted but have always wanted to try it out.  The rehearsal schedule will be worked out between the director and actors after auditions in order to accommodate any conflicts.

Fill out an Audition Form to schedule an audition appointment. Walk-ins are always welcome, but those with appointments will take priority. Once you fill out an Audition Form, our producer, Liz Tracey will contact you with your appointment time. If you submit a form, and don’t hear back from us within a couple of days, please email


The New Play Festival will be held Saturday, September 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. This biennial Festival celebrates up and coming playwrights as well as more established authors trying their hand at something new. The eight 10-minute plays chosen for performance were selected from more than 200 submissions.
