Village Theatre Musicals

web site

Village Theatre (Everette WA) accepts submissions from June 1 to August 3 each year— anyone can submit a libretto sample for consideration, provided they follow the guidelines listed below. Full scripts will be accepted by invitation only.

Village Theatre is committed to inclusivity and encourages submissions with diverse stories, experiences, musical styles, forms, content, and points of view.

Your musical must fit these criteria:

MUSICALS ONLY - we do not accept non-musical plays, plays with music, or traditional operas;
We are seeking professional-level writers. Emerging, mid-career, and master writers are all encouraged to submit;

We do not accept children’s theatre or Theatre For Young Audiences (TYA) shows;

While we only need a sample at this time, shows must have a full-length script available upon request (at least 80 minutes);

At least 3 demo recordings must be available - they do not need to be professional/studio quality but they must be clear enough to hear lyrics, melody and accompaniment;

All content must either be wholly original, based on work in public domain, or authors must have underlying rights and/or permissions to use any pre-existing material. No exceptions;

Your musical is still in development - no shows can have been on Broadway or licensed by a major licensing house.

We only accept digital submissions. Hard copy submissions will be returned unopened.

LIBRETTO SAMPLE INSTRUCTIONS
We ask that all open submissions submit a 15-20 page libretto sample. Full scripts will be accepted by invitation only. Please submit the 15-20 pages that will most make us want to read more. Your 15-20 page selection must be consecutive pages (ex: you may not submit pages 1-10 and 50-60) and two of your song demos must be contained within the sample pages you submit. Do not include a title page. If your script submission is longer than 20 pages total we will not review it.

SONG SELECTION INSTRUCTIONS
We ask for 3-5 songs. Please include all songs that are in your 15-20 page libretto sample. If you are able to include more songs beyond your libretto sample (without going over 5 songs) please choose the songs that most represent the show and your skill as a writer.
