PLAYWRIGHTS - Seeking Scripts: Summer Season 2015 Open to Submissions!!

Moonlit Wings Pro, celebrated entertainment production in the National Capitol Area & beyond, is accepting play and musical script submissions for our professional Performing Arts Camp for youth ages 7-14. Selected scripts will be workshopped and produced this summer by a DC creative team & playwrights will receive a production review with materials.

SUBMISSION CRITERIA:

-Plays or Musicals (straight plays are fine, although we will ask to work music into your play)

-Runtime: 20-40 minutes (hour long scripts may be submitted but we will ask to make necessary cuts)

-LARGE cast, 15 minimum - 35 maximum, ensemble shows preferred, female driven or gender neutral casts encouraged

-Material suitable to be performed by talent ages 7-14

Our theme this year is: "Season VIII: ‘GREAT 8: Championing our greatest qualities that make us unique " and we are especially seeking stories about embracing our differences and celebrating our similarities.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION:

Since 2008, MWP has mounted over 40 world-premieres of new theatre-for-youth workshop productions every summer. This summer we are selecting 4 brand-new shows to workshop and produce. Each show rehearses for a 2-week session with a professional director, choreographer, & tech director/stage manager and concludes with a public performance at the end of each session. Playwrights are given a thorough production review from the creative team and the chance to debut and promote their work with our leading youth arts organization. This is our 8th year in partnership with the Fairfax County Park Authority (est. in 1950), the 6th largest county in the USA, located in the National Capital Area.
