The National Theatre for Student Artists (NTSA) is currently accepting play and musical scripts for our 2014-2015 Season. If you've ever wanted to see your work performed in a major off-Broadway theater, send us your script!
Open to all high school and college students currently enrolled in the 2014-2015 academic school year. Limited to two plays per playwright. (If you are submitting two scripts, please submit each script separately.)
We are seeking new plays that are relevant to young adults of the current generation. We are particularly interested in plays that tackle issues related to American identity, society, and culture in creative and dynamic ways. More than strict adherence to these suggested themes, we prioritize the potential for active staging of well-developed and complex characters in original comedic and dramatic situations.
Your play can be published but must not have been previously professionally produced. We are accepting all plays in electronic format only. Plays submitted after the application date may not be considered.
Winner must be available to attend rehearsals during the 2015 summer for their fully produced off-Broadway premiere. NTSA will provide transportation and housing.
Long One-Acts or Full-Length plays. Typed in standard stage play format. Submit as PDF documents only.
Include one page with your name, address, phone number, email address, and a 100-word personal bio. Additionally include the name of a teacher reference and their contact information.
Include one page with your name, name of the play, character breakdown, and a 100-word synopsis of your play.
SUBMIT TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
DEADLINE: MONDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2014
