If you are a male playwright you may not apply for this contest.

Everyone else is invited to enter one play or play-with-music to

Echo Theatre's BIG SHOUT OUT 3 International New Play Contest.

​Scripts must be a minimum of 45-minute one-acts to full-length scripts.

No musicals** or 10-minute plays will be considered for this year's contest.



The Contest Winner receives a $1000 Royalty and Echo will present the winning play either as a workshop production or a mainstage regional premiere*** in Echo Theatre's 24th Season, which runs during the 2022 calendar year.



Finalist Honorees each receive a $150 Royalty from Echo to present the Finalist scripts one to two times in our 2022 Echo Reads Performance Reading Series.



Ooohhh! Fine Print! * About women+: We recognize the limiting nature of the binary use of the word “woman.” We use

the term “women-plus” to include an expansive and diverse array of people; including those

born female, those who identify as women, and those who who are gender non-conforming.

** If your script identifies singers' ranges and requires musical direction and instrumental

accompaniment, we consider it to be a musical, which is not our area of expertise.

*** Depending on our assessment of the script's state of readiness for production.



Call for Entries is NOW through 11:59 pm August 15, 2021.

"HOW DO I SUBMIT MY SCRIPT?"

Via Email to: ShoutOut@EchoTheatre.org

2021 Big Shout Out Submission Form
2021 Big Shout Out Submission Form
BIG SHOUT OUT 3 GUIDELINES



Please submit three items via email:

your script without your name in it

our submission form (above right)

a separate document with your bio

We are requesting Digital Submissions Only. No Paper copies accepted.

This is a Blind Reading Contest; please no scripts with your name on them. (This is so that we aren't judging influenced by anyone's reputation or a past relationship with a playwright.)

Our Contest Staff will log your entry and reply to you that we received it.

We ask that you please limit your submission to one play per playwright.

Scripts should be unpublished and past workshop productions are fine.

Scripts should be primarily written for English-language audiences.

(Other languages may be in the script, as long as English is the primary language.)

Every submission will be read and assigned points for story/theme, form, language/dialogue, theatricality and aspects unique to itself.

Please submit full scripts; no synopses or treatments. Thanks.

All cast sizes are considered. Past Winners' cast sizes ranged from 2 to 13.



There are no fees to enter THE BIG SHOUT OUT 3.

Thanks for your interest!

A Note to Playwrights...

Echo Theatre enjoys plays that encourage learning, growing, and evolving together as people and as an institution. We look for work that cries out to be performed in a theatrical setting. Whether your script is an experiment in form and language, a comedy, a drama, a work about historical characters, or a new translation, we pledge to produce rich and compelling creative work with high quality artistic effort.
