Acadians Repertory Theatre seeks full-length work for development

web site

The Acadiana Repertory Theatre is committed to serve playwrights as a place where they feel they can develop work with a company that has a desire to help in the growth of both the playwright and the play. We strive to create a safe, creative, open environment for our playwrights and, using our own experience, along with the experiences of some of our friends from across the country, we seek to help playwrights create and develop shows that have the best chance of a long life of production. Through developmental readings, developmental productions, and soon, the possibilities of residences, we hope to help, through working with the amazing playwrights we come in contact with, the voices of new american playwrights be heard. We are now accepting submissions for our 2018 Season, which kicks off in in early March. We accept submissions of full length plays and musicals.

In order to be eligible for consideration, submissions:
-Should be no longer than 90 minutes (we occasionally make exceptions)
-Should be full length.
-Should be actor/story forward
-Have minimal technical and set requirements
-Have a cast no larger than 10
-Should have limited to no production history and should not be published

We are looking specifically for work that you are looking to further develop and are looking for playwrights who want to be involved in the process. Include some information about yourself Submit in PDF format Submit your materials to submissions@acadianarep.org Please note: There are no submission fees nor is there a fee to be a part of the season. Playwrights will be responsible for travel expenses should they choose to join us for any part of the process. 
We look forward to hearing from you!
