Renegade Theatre Festival

web site

The Renegade Theatre Festival, held in Lansing, Michigan, is seeking new plays for our annual festival held in August. Going into its 12th year in the festival-rich Old Town district, Renegade is a free, completely volunteer festival that gives theaters and independent producer/writer/directors an opportunity to present works that they might not normally stage. This summer marks the eighth year of the festival featuring new, original works – Renegade N.O.W.!

We will be accepting plays in two separate categories. We will be accepting new, original works that meet the following guidelines:

New Plays #1:
Plays should be no longer than 90 minutes in length. (45 pages)
Have never been produced.
Can be any style/genre.

New Plays #2:
Plays written on the theme: Alternative Facts: Rogue Reality
Are not longer than 10 minutes in length.
Have a cast of no more than three characters.
Have never been produced.
Can be any style/genre.
Can be fully produced using minimal setting/props/costumes.

The deadline for new play submissions is May 15th, 2017.
Plays should be sent electronically to: ptufford35@gmail.com

All scripts should be submitted electronically. Only under certain circumstances will hard copies of scripts be accepted through the mail. Please feel free to email me with any questions at the above email address.

Please include your name, address, phone and email address with your submission. Playwrights should also include a brief synopsis of their play that can be used in promotional material as well as a short bio. Playwrights whose plays have been selected will be notified by late June.

Selected plays will be seen by as many as 2,000 festival goers as well as professional, community and educational theatre representatives. Highlights from previous festivals have included performances of comedy, drama, musicals, children’s theatre, performance art, readings of new works by local playwrights, spoken word and improvisation. Past participants have included Williamston Theatre, Peppermint Creek Theatre Company, Ruhala Performing Arts Center, Starlight Dinner Theatre, Lansing Community College Theatre, All-of-us Express Children’s Theatre, Mid-Michigan Family Theatre, Saginaw Valley State University, Holt-Dimondale Community Players, Shakespeare on the Grand, Riverwalk Theatre and Michigan State University.

We look forward to reading your new play!
