*Ladies, you’ve worked hard to hone your craft. You’ve been performing for years and finally, you stepped out and developed your own theatrical piece. Moreover, you’ve performed it for small crowds on a number of occasions and much to your delight…they loved it.
 
If this sounds like you, the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival, now in its 25th year, would love to meet you. Who knows, after their panel of professionals get a look at your video performance…they may love it too!
 
 
But you won’t know if you don’t submit. Don’t listen to that ‘negative’ voice in your head. Go! Get your stuff together. Send it in! The countdown is on towards their extended October 1 deadline.
