Deadline: June 15, 2017
ArtAge Publications, the source of Senior Theatre plays, books and materials for older performers is accepting submissions for their 2018-19 catalog. Meeting the needs of older performers, from amateur to professional, there is something for everyone--from short and easy sketches to 3-act musicals.
What to submit: The Senior Theatre collection features plays and musicals of all lengths, but short shows which run up to 20 minutes are the most popular. Directors look for comedies with mainly female casts that require few technical elements and ones that can be staged as readers theatre. Successfully performed shows have senior casts (or mostly senior) with up-to-date, feisty characters in current situations. Roles should challenge performers, yet be fun to stage.
To learn more about the field and the Senior Theatre Resource Center, review the catalog and read Writing Plays for Senior Theatre, an e-document available on the website. Click here for the Writers' Guidelines with complete submission information. Let us know your questions.
