YouthPLAYS seeks plays and musicals

web site

YouthPLAYS seeks exciting, entertaining and challenging plays and musicals for young actors and/or audiences for publication! Founded by playwrights Jonathan Dorf and Ed Shockley, we currently represent over 150 authors and publish scripts for teen and pre-teen actors, as well as works for professional theatre for young audiences performed by adults. Our mission is to showcase material that has at least some significant teen or younger characters and/or that is of strong youth interest.

Of particular interest are one-act plays for high/middle school festivals and competition (30-35 minutes maximum, comedies very welcome), adaptations and parodies of well-known titles, plays that address teen issues in innovative and theatrical ways (episodic and vignette-style structures welcome), multicultural (and especially bilingual) plays and short plays for teen/pre-teen performers for classroom and competitive use—but we are open to any well written scripts that are appropriate for our market. For shows geared toward young performers, large (or very large) or flexible casts and a preponderance of female roles are a major plus. We recommend visiting our website and getting better acquainted with us before submitting. Scripts should be submitted directly through the site at http://youthplays.com/submit_play.php.
