What do you get when you mix comedy, romance, and mystery from 10 international playwrights with the talent of 26 Twin Cities actors and 10 directors? You get the 10th annual 10-Minute Play Festival by Lakeshore Players Theatre.

Each year since 2004, Lakeshore holds a highly regarded 10-minute play writing contest. Both novice and published playwrights from around the world submit new works. Out of hundreds submitted, Lakeshore Players Theatre picks 10 to perform.
