The Resident Theatre Company (RTC) at Fullerton College is seeking submissions of original full-length plays and original full-length musical theatre works of any genre for its 26th Annual Playwright's Festival to be held January 4-22, 2016 in the Fullerton College Bronwyn Dodson Theatre, Fullerton CA. Accepted scripts are workshopped and given a staged reading/performance.

Company members in the Festival have the unique opportunity to participate in the script development process from several angles. Performers have the chance to be the first to bring life to a written character, as well as learn the skills of efficient preparation for script-in-hand reading and the flexibility necessary for working with a fluid and changing script. Company members watch the process unfold and see how various choices impact the direction of a play, learning various critical tools to help understand why and how a piece of theater has its effect. By the time of the rehearsed readings, members of the company will be able to respond to the scripts both as performers and as colleagues of the playwrights.

The Festival is looking for directors, actors, dramaturges, and administrative staff to participate in Playwright Festival workshops and staged readings. There are also positions available for assistant dramaturges: students who want to focus on the playmaking and revision process. Assistant dramaturges will learn critical tools and methods for useful and positive interaction with playwrights in the middle of a sensitive and often-fragile revision process. This will be valuable for those interested in writing themselves, as well as for those studying critical theory.
