Over Our Head Players has announced the nine finalists selected for performance at the "2023 Snowdance® 10 Minute Comedy Festival."

The largest number of entries came from New York, followed by California. Two of the 2023 finalists competed in previous Snowdance competitions.

Season 31 Lineup
jan"Snowdance®" 10 Minute Comedy Festival
19th Anniversary Festival Competition of Original Comedies
You know the drill! The hit playwriting competition draws entries from around the globe. Judges choose the best to produce. Then, in the ultimate interactive experience, the audience votes on who should win the cash prize. It’s original comedy plus OOHPs' signature hijinks between plays. Utah has Sundance; Racine has Snowdance! A great reason for season tickets – this popular event sells out. These plays are not yet rated; they are not yet written! "R-rated" words or themes may be included.
mar"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"
Based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens
Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play
Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
If this were a movie, we think it would be rated "PG-13."
