Campfire Theatre Festival is accepting submissions

web site

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN TO EMERGING PLAYWRIGHTS WITH SCRIPTS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN PRODUCED.

"Emerging" is defined as a playwright that has not had more than two professional productions or a published script.

"Never been produced" means plays that have had small readings and workshops are fine, but plays that have been previously produced or published are not accepted.

We will accept plays in two categories:
  • One-act: Play must be between ten and sixty pages with no intermissions.
  • Full-length: Play must be more than sixty pages, less than one hundred and twenty pages, and may have an intermission.
We currently cannot accept musicals. We can accept children's plays. We will accept plays of any genre. Each playwright may submit ONE play-- not ONE of each category. Please keep in mind that we will be taking technical requirements and feasibility to produce with a short rehearsal schedule into consideration when making selections. 

IF YOU ARE SELECTED:
  • Your play will be assigned a cast and director
  • Your play will be presented in a staged reading during our festival in Fall 2017 in Boise, Idaho
  • You will receive a prize of either $100 for a selected full-length play or $50 for a selected one-act
  • Campfire Theatre Festival is not currently able to provide playwright travel stipends; however, if a selected playwright can provide their own travel to Boise for the festival, all efforts will be made to assist with housing and meals.
SUBMISSION CAPS AND DEADLINE:

The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2016. 

We will accept the first 100 one-act plays and 200 full-length plays and close submissions when we receive that many, even if it's before the deadline.
