BRAC to host inaugural 10-10-10 Play Series on Sunday | Entertainment

On Sunday, July 10, the Branson Regional Arts Council is hosting its inaugural 10-Minute Play Series at the Historic Owen Theatre in Downtown Branson.

The evening of plays, named 10-10-10, will begin at 7 p.m. and consist of 10 plays, lasting no longer than 10 minutes each. 10-10-10 provides local writers and directors of all skills and experience levels to practice their art in a low-stakes, low commitment and safe environment. 

As a whole, the plays will represent a variety of styles. Productions will include a contemporary comedy and drama, a fantasy, a surrealist piece, a silent film-style play and two classical plays. 

Kyle Blanchard, one of the participating 10-10-10 directors, was the inspiration behind this new event.

“This year, the directors and plays were chosen ahead-of-time from locals that displayed interest, but in the future anyone will be able to submit their play and/or submit to direct,” Blanchard said. “Writers and directors will be chosen on a first-come basis with no regard to experience.”

Admission into the event is free, but donations of $10 will be accepted at the door to help benefit BRAC’s Arts Education Program, which provides training and arts opportunities in theatre, music, vocal, dance, technical production and the visual arts for residents of all ages.
