Scripts sought for new play-reading festival at The Growing Stage in New Jersey

The New Play-Reading Festival is a wonderful opportunity for artists to have their unpublished works presented before an audience, in a play-reading scenario, by a cast consisting of both professional and amateur actors on two separate occasions during our 2014/2015 season.  This project is open to any unpublished and unproduced TYA scripts.

Four scripts will be chosen to be featred in this festival. The initial play readings will take place November 7th through the 9th. The second set of readings will take place February 27th through March 1st. After each reading, there will be a dialogue among the audience, performers and playwright. After the 2nd round of readings, one of the four scripts will then be selected to be presented as a fully mounted production in The Growing Stage’s 2015/2016 Season!!!

The three plays that were selected in the past festivals are With Two Wings by Anne Negri, The Secret Life of Hubie Hartzel by Susan Rowan Masters and next March, The Growing Stage will be presenting the world premiere professional production of And Then Came Tango by Emily Freeman. 

The Growing Stage is committed to creating and presenting professional theatre for young people and their families and to provide them with the unique and affordable opportunity to share a fun, culturally significant moment in an intimate and special venue, The Historic Palace Theatre. Young people are also given the opportunity to grow as performers by working alongside professional actors as part of the theatre learning experience. Shows usually require a minimum of 4 characters/performers; there is no maximum, provided that if necessary, doubling is OK with the playwright.

To submit scripts to The New Play-Reading Festival, please send scripts, along with a brief synopsis to the company’s Production Manager and head of the festival, Steve Graham:  prdmgr@growingstage.com
