The National Theatre for Student Artists (NTSA) is currently accepting play scripts for our 2013-2014 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 2013-2014 academic school year. Limited to one play per playwright. We encourage playwrights of all backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities to apply.
We are seeking new plays that are relevant to young adults of the current generation. We are particularly interested in plays that tackle issues of identity, society, and family roles in creative and dynamic ways. Works that feature unique young characters grappling with how to make an impact in a world that marginalizes them are especially welcome. 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 will be invited to attend rehearsals during Summer 2014 for their fully-produced off-Broadway premiere. NTSA will provide transportation and/or stipend.
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: email@example.com
DEADLINE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2013
