RENEGADE N.O.W. 2018

web site

The Renegade Theatre Festival, held in Lansing, Michigan, is seeking new plays for our annual festival held in August. Going into its 13th 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 ninth year of the festival featuring new, original works – Renegade N.O.W.!

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

New Plays #1:
Plays should be no longer than 60 minutes in length.
May have been produced as a staged reading or in workshop, but not as a fully produced production.
Can be any style/genre.

New Plays #2:
Plays written on the theme: AWKWARD ENCOUNTERS
Are not longer than 10 minutes in length.
Have a cast of no more than three characters.
May have been produced as a staged reading or in workshop, but not as a fully produced production.
Can be any style/genre.
Can be fully produced using minimal setting/props/costumes.

New Plays #3:
Plays written for a children’s audience.
Should be no longer than 30 minutes in length.
Have a cast of no more than four characters.

The deadline for new play submissions is April 30th, 2018. 

We will only be accepting 250 plays this year. Once that number of submissions has been reached, a notice will be posted on the festival website: www.renegadetheatrefestival.org


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. In previous years, the festival has included a variety of performances by local and mid-Michigan theatres and artists. This year, we are focusing all of our energies on new plays! We hope to foster and build this festival in celebration of playwrights and new work. We’re very excited for this next stage in growing our festival.

We look forward to reading your new play!

Cordially,
Paige Dunckel
