Theatre Odyssey has scheduled auditions at 6 p.m. Feb. 11 for its 8th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival.
Actors are needed for four comedies and four dramas that have been selected among dozens submitted by area writers.
The entries, previously announced are: "Excursions" by Brandon Cohela; "Reservations" by Dylan Jones; "War Hero" by Julian Olf; "White Castle" by Mike Phelan; "They're Gonna Kill Gertie" and "Leaving Nic" by Connie Schindewolf; and "A Little Help" and "Little Miss Ice Cream Cone" by Bernie Yanelli.
They will be joined by the play "Therapy," written by Saint Stephens Episcopal School students Sabrina Viota and Summer Begalka, who won the company's first Student Playwriting Festival.
Four shows were presented at State College of Florida. The play "Friends Forever," by Lakewood Ranch High students Francesca DiMaio, Melina Cuffaro and Amanda Robbins, received an honorable mention.
