2017 Young Audience Outreach Commissions

web site

One-third of CRT’s productions are new works, and every year CRT commissions a new show for its celebrated Young Audience Outreach Tour. The goal of this program is to bring theatre to thousands of kids in rural and underserved communities throughout the Southwest while creating an exciting opportunity for emerging playwrights. Bilingual (English/Spanish) plays are preferred, but not required. With a 31 years of successful productions we are looking for playwrights interested in working among a collaborative artistic team.

We are accepting submissions for the 2017 Young Audience Outreach Tour and if you would like to be considered for a commission, please, submit the following by May 30, 2016:

• Cover sheet with your name, contact info, and synopsis
• Cover letter that indicates experience in the following: touring shows, theatre for young
audiences, and/or plays that have been produced.
• 10-20 page excerpt

The Young Audience Outreach Tour performs shows based on core curriculum subjects: history of U.S. Presidents, the science of flight, the geography of the United States, the water cycle, the importance of math.
