web site

SEEKING SUBMISSIONS- NEW WORKS AND WRITERS FOR UNMASKED THEATRE COMPANY, a non-profit musical theatre company for social change.

Who should submit?

Both established and emerging writers with passion, drive, and commitment. We are seeking works fully or nearly at completion to be workshopped and produced in October, Fall 2015. We are also seeking an playwright in residence to work with us on further developing past works and continuing to develop new work.

What should I submit?

Any and all content that fits our mission statement:
Unmasked Theatre Company's current focus and mission is to de-stigmatize mental illness in our society. Unmasked uses musical theatre to promote social change as we believe the added elements of song and dance in musical theatre can reach people on a different and unique emotional level. We will utilize this to create discussion between people on their individual opinions, which will eventually expand to changing societal opinions on pivotal issues. The particular issues Unmasked will address are gender inequality, mental illness stigma, and class/racial inequality and mobility.

What materials should I submit?

1. A cover letter introducing yourself and the piece, complete with name, phone number, and email address.
2. A complete script of the piece
3. A demo of the score (if it is a musical)
4. If interested in the playwright in residence position- please also submit a resume and 2 references with contact information.

Where should I send my materials?

Please send cover letter, resume and references (if applicable), and script materials to unmaskedtheatrecompany@gmail.com. Feel free to email us with any additional questions you may have.
