20-20 Vision for TeCo

Twenty minutes can be magical, but 20 years can be quite the haul. In this case, that haul’s a fantastic one: TeCo Theatrical Productions is celebrating 20 years of staging multicultural theater by emerging artists. And this anniversary season is no different, with the 12th Annual New Play Competition. Running Thursday through March 2, each performance night features six one-act plays by local artists, each play 20 minutes or less. And while winning over an audience in 20 minutes (or years, for that matter) isn’t easy, it’s rewarding: Audiences vote for their favorites, and in the end one lucky playwright wins $1,000. Performances (7:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 3:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays; there is no performance February 27) are at the Bishop Arts Theatre Center, 215 S. Tyler St. Tickets are $15 online or, you guessed it, $20 at the door. Call 214-948-0716 or visit tecotheater.org.
Thursdays, Fridays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 3:30 p.m.; Fri., Feb. 28, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Feb. 20. Continues through March 2, 2014
