Brain Trust Theatricals is looking for bold, new character-driven plays

http://braintrusttheatricals.wordpress.com/

Brain Trust Theatricals is looking for bold, new character-driven plays to make up its inaugural season.

To be considered, please send a play synopsis, full character list, and a ten-page script sample. Plays still in development are welcomed. Please note that while we are not producing children’s theater, each play in our season will have an educational outreach component. For this reason, plays with extreme sexual content will not be considered.

Script submissions can be sent to

Elizabeth Schwartz at BrainTrustTheatricals@gmail.com

or snailmail to:

330 W 45th Street
Lobby H
New York, NY 10036

Actor Art Theatre submission guidelines
http://nycp.blogspot.com/2012/05/actor-art-theatre-submission-guidelines.html

Website - http://www.actorsart.com/about.html

Please do not submit a full script. Please submit a query letter and synopsis of the play to
Actors Art Theatre
6128 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90048,

or by email to script@actorsart.com.

Send email only as text within the body of your message. Do not send attachments of any kind. If we want to read the full script, we will request it.

We do read all material, and that entails a substantial response time, generally 3 - 8 months . Every script considered for production will be publicly read as part of our PlayPen Series.

We produce a variety of styles but we do not do musicals due to space limitations. Drama, comedies, farce, political - all are fine to submit. Keep in mind our production restrictions: our playing area is 16' x 12'; no wing or fly space; cast size should not exceed 10 (without doubling).

We operate under the 99 Seat Plan of Actors Equity Association, which provides for token payment of actors and stage managers. Writers are paid a percentage of the box office. Performers are not paid for student workshops or showcases.

The Black Ship Co. is currently seeking plays for our 2013-2014 season. We're based in Chicago, our focus is on new works, and we're primarily looking for plays that have had fewer than 5 productions. You can learn more about us at blackshipco.org

This upcoming season will include fully produced plays, workshops, and a reading series. All plays sent to us will be considered for all three unless you specifically request otherwise.

For this season, we're seeking plays with a touch of the absurd, imaginary, or the magical. We're talking everything from tall tales & urban legends to new myths & folk heroes.

We're also going to be launching a Children's Theater Summer Series, and are seeking plays for that as well. For that, we are searching for 40-60 minute plays that stretch the imagination and contain characters whose struggles inspire adults and children alike to the better parts of humanity. Put simply, "Ad astra per aspera."

To submit your work, go to http://blackshipco.org/submissions

If you have any questions, please contact our literary manager at andrew.coil@blackshipco.org

Wily West Productions is looking to establish strong relationships with local playwrights. We want to work with writers who believe in our mission, support us and attend our productions. We are committed to developing and supporting our writers and we are looking for playwrights who are interested in an ongoing productive association with our company.

Submissions for scripts are open. We are looking for one act scripts as well as full-length plays.

GENERAL GUIDELINES for PLAYS:

Playwrights must live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

We love seeing short scripts from you. We often have a need to present 6-8 plays that are about 6-15 pages in length and this definitely gives you better odds of seeing your work produced by us.

Full-length scripts must be no more than 85 pages long.

Plays can be about any subject matter or in any style or genre you like.

All submissions must be electronic in MS Word (.doc), Rich Text Format (.rtf), or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format only. If you cannot send an electronic copy, contact us and we will make arrangements for hard copy submission.

No scripts will be returned; save postage. No SASE required.

Plays that have received a production of any kind (Equity or non-Equity), musicals, children's shows, and any unsolicited longer than 85 pages are not accepted.

Each manuscript must be typed and be in standard script format.

Title page must include name, address and phone number. Please include an e-mail address if possible.

Please submit all scripts to:

submissions@wilywestproductions.com
--- that's: submissions (at) wilywestproductions (dot) com

Are you a playwright, or playwriting student, between the ages of 18 and 29? Are you frustrated with the limited opportunities to see your work onstage? Would you like to see your work mounted in a major American urban center, and exposed to an audience of paying customers?

Allow On the Brink Productions to help you make your creative vision a reality. We are a group of up and coming young theatrical professionals, all recent college graduates, looking to discover and develop mutually rewarding artistic collaborations with today’s hottest young writers and performers. We are currently seeking a script, preferably one that has not been previously produced, to stage at a premier New York theatre festival in the summer of 2013.

Let’s face it folks, the “real world” can be an unforgiving, and at times, frightening place, but there’s safety in numbers. Come join us as we strive to create the best in the next generation of cutting-edge theatrical artistry. On the Brink Productions asks that submissions be no more than 90 minutes in length, and feature a cast of no more than five actors. A small stipend may be available to the author of the selected script. On behalf of everyone at On the Brink, we thank you for your submissions, and encourage you to keep writing.

Please send all submissions to onthebrinktheare@gmail.com

La Petite Morgue is willing to consider your script! Here are the guidelines you need:
Your script must be horror. No comedies, no spoofs.
We are interested in plays written for the stage. We don't make films. Yet.
We will consider musicals, if they are as dark or darker than Sweeney Todd.
We will consider one-man or one-woman shows, if they are sufficiently fascinating.

Please send us no more than 30 pages the first time you submit. You can send us three different ten minute plays, or the first 30 pages of your full length play, or any combination you like, but please don't send us more than 30 pages worth of work. If we like those thirty pages, we'll invite you to send more.

Our ideal submission is a unique, suspenseful horror show that A.) is scary and B.) features compelling characters. We especially like strong female characters, surprising endings, and plays with immersive or interactive elements.

Send your scripts to: lapetitemorgue@gmail.com and make sure to include your name and an e-mail address where you can be reached in the document. Microsoft Word and PDF are the best formats for submissions.

Unfortunately, we do not have time to respond to every submission, and we will only contact you if we are interested in producing something or if we want to see more of your work.

The best way to get a sense of what we like is to attend one of our events and experience the live horror for yourself! The Fresh Blood Monthly Reading Series for New Horror takes place on the first Wednesday night of every month at 8pm at Happy Ending Lounge, 302 Broome Street, Manhattan.

There are never any fees to submit, and if your play is chosen, you will receive free drink vouchers if you attend the reading. That's right, we pay you in booze. For now.

The Compound, a theatre collective in southwestern Louisiana, is seeking new plays for their 2012 new
play development program.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR: We’re looking for previously unproduced, full-length shows for 10 actors
or less. (Shows with a history or readings or workshops are welcome.)

WHAT KIND OF PLAY EXCITES US?: Strong stories, bold characters, plays with as much on their heart
as on their mind, plays that play with language in inventive ways, plays that explore communities and
experiences not normally represented in the theatre.

WHAT WE’RE DOING WITH THE PLAYS WE FIND: We will begin exploring new works that interest us in
a series of readings starting in 2012. From those readings, we’ll further the developmental process with
writers and plays we connect with. We are more interested in finding writers we can work with over many
projects, not just a single reading of a single play.

WHAT WE’D LIKE TO SEE: We’d like a cover letter telling us a little about you, a one-page synopsis, and
a 10-page writing sample from the play. Send your submission ATTN: Cody Daigle at
thecompoundtheatre@gmail.com

Script Submission Guidelines
Please include the following information to allow us to contact you if we have questions about your script:
Full Name of Playwright
Complete Mailing Address
Email Address
The font should be easily readable and 10-14pt.in size.
Your script must contain page numbers.
Include a list of characters. Keep it brief but be sure to include any important details such as gender, age and race if applicable.
Any script submitted must be the sole work of the playwright(s) and must not include any material you do not have permission to use.
All scripts must be in English.
Scripts can be sent electronically below or via US Mail to:
Raconteur Theatre Company
Attn: Mary-Aileen St.Cyr
P.O. Box 6111
Columbus, Ohio 43206
Script Submission Suggestions
Raconteur is a small company with fewer than 15 members. We typically perform scripts which allow us to be as minimal as possible or include only one or two locations. We read many scripts to find the ones we feel fit us best. The following are a few suggestions to help you to have the best possible opportunity:
We accept scripts of all lengths. We do not accept screenplays.
Providing a cover page including the title, playwright name, contact information, a little background on the playwright, cast size, genre, approximate run time, and a brief synopsis is helpful.
Electronic submissions are strongly preferred.
Including a production and publication history if applicable is strongly preferred.
Proofread to be certain there are no serious grammatical errors.
Consider audiences when choosing a title, think about how it will look on a poster or in a press release. It should compel audiences to come see the show.
Try not to include stage directions or costume design unless they are imperative to tell your story.
We suggest limiting your cast of characters to no more than 8 and your list of settings to no more than 2.
Special interest is given to writers from the Central Ohio area.
Please note that Raconteur Theatre Company does not provide any comments or suggestions about work that we neither intend to develop nor produce. Although we accept material year-round, we do not guarantee that every script will be read. We will not return any materials physically mailed to us unless they are accompanied with a SASE and adequate postage.

Athena Project is proud to announce the call for submissions for its 2014 Plays in Progress Series (PIP Series). This Series will take place in Denver at The Aurora Fox Studio Theatre over the course of 3 long weekends, March 14-30, 2014, as part of a larger arts festival celebrating the Voices of Women Artists, including the World Premiere of Government Issued Long Johns by Erin Wagoner, winner of this year’s PIP Series.

Four new plays will be selected based on a blind submission process and given a dramaturg, director, cast and workshop level production during the Festival. One play from the PIP Series 2014 will win a full production in March of 2015 based on a combination of a panel of judges and audience vote. Scripts are being accepted from now until midnight, August 1, 2013.

Visit http://www.athenaprojectfestival.org to submit your script.

Submission Guidelines are as follows:

1. Playwright must be female and may only submit ONE full-length script.
2. The play must not have ever had a fully mounted production. Prior workshop presentations are okay, but the script must be a new version since the time of the workshop.
3. Submission must include:
a. Full copy of script (without playwright contact info*)
b. Character breakdown (without playwright contact info*)
c. Short synopsis of script (300 word limit, without playwright contact info*)
d. Resume
e. Cover letter addressing what the playwright would like to accomplish with the workshop presentation and how she heard about the call for submissions

4. Plays submitted without all supporting materials included will be disqualified.
5. We recommend the playwright be able to travel to the area for rehearsals as needed if selected, and for at least one workshop production performance at their own expense.

We will select 4 playwrights to participate in the PIP Series and hope to strike a balance between local and national work. Exact rehearsal and performance schedules will be worked out with the director, dramaturg, and playwright after all plays are selected.

Please contact us at aastle@athenaprojectfestival.org if you have any questions about submitting. You will receive a confirmation upon receipt of materials.

*Contact info must be listed ONLY on resume and cover letter, not on script or any other documents (submissions will be read blind). All documents should include the Title of the Play, but no playwright contact information.
Timeline:

Deadline to submit all materials is midnight, August 1, 2013

Four finalists will be selected in October 2013. Directors
and Dramaturgs will be selected in November 2013

Rehearsals will begin in January 2014

Plays in Progress Series (part of Athena Project’s Arts Festival) opens March 14, 2014

CALL FOR OTHER ARTISTS’ SUBMISSIONS FOR FESTIVAL WILL BE LATER THIS FALL. PLEASE CHECK BACK ON OUR WEBSITE FOR FURTHER INFO OR SIGN UP TO RECEIVE OUR NEWSLETTERS FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION.

SUBMIT
Play and chamber musical submissions are sought by Ex Libris Theatre Company for our fall 2010 developmental reading series.

Our newly formed company aims to present new, exciting works by emerging and recently-emerged writers. Wherever possible, we encourage submissions inspired or influenced by great works of the past (though this is by no means a requirement for selection).

Most essential are a distinctive voice, a desire to grapple with playwriting forms, and a willingness to work with our company as we seek to develop your work.

Selected plays will be presented in reading form (basic staging is occasionally possible). Our aim, through this initial series of readings, is to find exciting new works to develop further.

PLAY SUBMISSIONS:
If submitting a play, please send a full script to exlibristheatre@gmail.com in PDF or Word formats along with a brief cover letter regarding your goals for the piece. Feel free to include a brief synopsis, but this is not required.

MUSICAL SUBMISSIONS:
Submissions of small-cast musicals are also sought. Any musicals submitted must feature a cast size of six or fewer and be able to be presented in a chamber setting with minimal orchestrations. Two-, three-, and four-person musicals with a quirky, innovative edge (a la “The Last Five Years,” “Jon and Jen,” “[title of show]” and “tick, tick…BOOM!” are encouraged). We’re looking for the next big thing in small musicals.

If submitting a musical, please include a full script along with up to 4 songs in .mp3 format (the files may be zipped). Materials can be submitted to exlibristheatre@gmail.com.

At this time, La Petite Morgue is specifically looking for short horror plays (under 30 minutes) for our Fresh Blood Reading Series. You are welcome to submit up to 30 pages of a full-length play, but our current project is the reading series, and the "Best of Fresh Blood" short play festival in July, 2014.

We have announced the themes of the April and May editions, so feel free to submit a horror play related "Murderous Revenge" (submissions due by March 24, reading on April 2), or "Prom Night" (submissions due April 16, reading on May 7). Submissions not related to one of these themes will be considered for our events in June and beyond.

Our ideal submission has:
* Conflict and danger starting on the first page. (Don't send your script if it's 12 pages of a relationship drama that suddenly has a gruesome murder "twist" on the last page. We've read that play a lot.)
* A cast of no more than five characters
* Female characters who are the heroes, or the villains - NOT just the brain-dead damsels in distress. (Gender stereotypes are gross. And not in a good way.)
* The ability to give our jaded, horror-loving audience members nightmares - or at least momentary goosebumps.
* Ten to 20 minutes in running time

Also, our original venue, Happy Ending, has closed. Fresh Blood still takes place on the first Wednesday of every month at 8pm, but our new home is the Dressing Room Boutique & Bar, at 75A Orchard Street in lower Manhattan. We invite you to join us and see for yourself what we're all about.

Scripts should be sent to: lapetitemorgue@gmail.com - we like .pdf and .doc files the best, but whatever you send us, we can probably figure out how to open it. Just don't try to mail things to us, please. We don't swing that way.

For more information, visit: http://www.LaPetiteMorgue.org

The Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival, headquartered in Auburn, N.Y., is now accepting submissions for new musicals in development to be considered for the fifth season of The PiTCH. The PiTCH is a new works series that offers residency and retreat for creative teams and the opportunity to develop and “pitch” their new musical to an engaged and enthusiastic audience. Teams benefit from dialogue and feedback immediately following their “pitch.”

Submission deadline is Dec. 31, 2015. The PiTCH 2016 season runs from June 16 – July 30 and takes place at Theater Mack, an 80-seat cabaret-style venue in a converted carriage house behind the Cayuga Museum in downtown Auburn.

Creative teams chosen to participate are provided roundtrip travel, housing, dedicated staff, marketing, an elegant, intimate venue, and the beautiful backdrop of the Finger Lakes to immerse in their writing and development process.

“To be able to offer residency and immersion to creative teams and to see their work flourish and thrive is very fulfilling to us individually, as artists and collectively, as an arts organization. We’re proud that The PiTCH turns 5 this year – here’s to many more birthdays!” said Brett Smock, Producing Artistic Director of Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival.

In its first four seasons, The PiTCH has been a development platform for the creative teams of 47 new musicals. Many teams have moved on to have their works presented and produced at a wide variety of theatres and festivals around the country.

Rob Rokicki, composer and lyricist of Relativity—which appeared in the series in 2014, said of the experience, “The PiTCH was one of the single best experiences I’ve had in terms of workshopping a new work in a safe, professional environment.”

For details on how you can be part of the 2016 season and submission requirements for The PiTCH, visit http://www.fingerlakesmtf.com/the-pitch and follow @ThePitchFLMTF on Twitter.

Regular Submissions
Seattle Playwrights Salon is a monthly readings series created to highlight and nurture playwrights in the Seattle area.

We happily accept submissions from local playwrights. We accept full-length plays that run under two hours, one-acts, and shorts.

Before you submit, note that this is a self-production opportunity. We have a pool of actors and directors you're welcome to pull from, we have access to free rehearsal space, we will handle marketing and logistics and front of house, we even have the music stands. But playwrights or production teams should only submit with the understanding the Seattle Playwrights Salon is not a producer. We are your host. Our goal is to provide a public forum to help you and your play grow.

Please email your script and contact information to:

seattleplaywrightssalon@gmail.com
Find out about our current submission requests and submission requests from theaters across the globe at Play Submission Helper - http://www.playsubmissionshelper.com/blog

HOW TO SUBMIT?

Submit plays to:
Urban Stages
555 Eighth Avenue, RM 1800
New York, NY 10018

Email submissions will not be accepted.

Full-length plays only:
- scripts must be firmly bound
- No changes or revisions accepted after submission
- No double-sided pages.
- 7 actors or less (unless otherwise noted)…doubling is fine

With your submission, please include:
- Biography and/or author’s history of the play
- Character breakdown
- Brief synopsis of the play.
- A small SASE envelope for a response letter.
*Whole plays will no longer be returned. All plays will be recycled.

Plays MAY HAVE BEEN developed or produced elsewhere, BUT NEVER PRODUCED in New York City.

There is no limit to submissions.
Subject matter and character variations are open.

There is no submission fee.

It usually takes up to six months for us to read and process your script. We ask that you do not call or email our offices to inquire on the status of your play.

Plays from overseas and throughout the United States are accepted and considered. BUT special attention will be given to playwrights who live in or near New York.

We recommend not spending extra money to send your play express, overnight or via other expensive services. We accept plays year-round and for special deadlines, we accept plays postmarked on the deadline date. For special deadlines, late plays are just entered among our general year-round submissions.


WHAT TO SUBMIT TO & WHEN?

No deadline. Year-round submissions accepted.

It begins with submitting your play and being selected for step 1 of our process - a staged reading. Out of hundreds of submissions a year, we select 15-20 plays for readings. From these, we select 1-3 plays annually to go on to our workshopping phase. Our workshops are meant to prepare a play for our Off-Broadway stage. From our workshops, we select 1-2 plays for full productions, complete with a playwright’s contract and compensation (separate from the award).

Our $500 Emerging Playwright Award (coupled with press coverage) is given to playwrights who show excellence and dedication throughout this process – from development to the stage.
