New Plays for Young Audiences seeks full-length play scripts

web site

New Plays for Young Audiences seeks new unpublished and unproduced full-length play scripts for young audiences for our 21st season, June 2018. 

The final date that submissions for 2018 will be accepted is October 31, 2017.

Submission Guidelines:

In your email submission, please include your name, the name of the play, and where we can contact you.
Also include in your submission your goals for the week of development – questions about the script you hope to answer, characters you want to further develop, story areas you want to look closer at, etc. Scripts received without goals are automatically disqualified, as this is an important part of our process.
If you are submitting an adaptation, we ask that you include proof that the original author has agreed to you adapting their work.
Finally, also rank, from most to least preferred, the development week that works best for you. We cannot guarantee a preferred slot, but this information will help facilitate the scheduling process once scripts are selected. The 2018 series is slated to run June 3-24 in three one-week segments: June 3-10, June 10-17, and June 17-24.

Please note that we only accept previously unpublished and unproduced full-length play scripts. If your script has had a fully produced production, we cannot accept it. We accept musical submissions, but do not generally develop a musical every season. If you are uncertain if your script meets this requirement or believe there is cause for an exemption, feel free to contact us (David Montgomery or Teresa Fisher).

We welcome scripts of any cast size, but are limited to 10 actors due to the size of our stage. If your script requires more than 10 actors, include doubling suggestions with your submission.

To submit your new previously unpublished and unproduced play for young audiences for consideration in our 2018 series, send your script between July 1 and October 31, 2017, to Producer/Production Manager, Teresa Fisher. We reply to all submissions within 7 days of receiving them.
