The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is accepting scripts for the 2007-2008 Readers’ Theater Series.

Scripts should be previously unproduced, although works in progress are acceptable. Plays may be one-act or longer, but should not exceed two hours maximum. A $100 honorarium will be awarded to each playwright chosen.

Previously produced scripts include “Old Flame in the Boiler Room” by George Savage, based on the early days of phone solicitation and drawn from Savage’s own experience as a phone solicitor. Russell Weeks’s “The First Flower” explored the influence a high school English teacher has on one of his students, a football player, and deals with the age-old battle between fine-arts and sports.

Send scripts along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope by Aug. 31 to Readers’ Theater Series, Attn: Willy Clark, Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, 18560 1st Ave. NE, Shoreline, 98155.
