Growing Stage New Play-Reading Festival Submission

web site

Submissions OPEN till Oct. 1st

This project is open to any unpublished and unproduced non-musical TYA scripts to be considered as one of four plays to be featured in the New Play-Reading Festival this coming season at The Growing Stage Theatre – The Children’s Theatre of 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The New Play-Reading Festival is a wonderful opportunity for artists to have their unpublished works presented before an audience, in a play-reading scenario, by a cast consisting of both professional and amateur actors on two separate rounds during our season.

After each reading, there is a dialogue among the audience, performers and playwright, if present.  After 2nd Round of play readings, one of the four scripts are then selected to be presented as a fully mounted production in The Growing Stage’s 2019 – 2020 season!

  • Plays should be intended for young audiences through high school age and have a minimum performance length of approximately 45 minutes.
  • Scripts may be previously produced, but must be unpublished and not committed to publication.
  • Supporting materials (resumes, photos, reviews, etc.) should not accompany submissions.
  • Playwright may submit up to two scripts.
  • We do ask that scripts be submitted via email as a PDF to Danny Campos, New Play-Reading Festival Director at newplays@growingstage.com
  • The playwright’s name must not be visible anywhere on the script.  Please include the playwright’s name, address, phone, and play title in your email submission.
  • If you choose to send a manuscript via mail please note that the script cannot be returned.  Playwrights should include a self-addressed, stamped postcard for confirmation of receipt of their scripts.
  • Musicals are eligible.  Submissions must include a sample recording of the music and lyrics.  Please do not send a written score.
  • Playwrights shall allow the release of their names, addresses, and play titles to The Growing Stage.
  • If your script submission is an adaptation, we do ask that you also please include proof that you have permission from the author to adapt their work.

Mailed submissions should be sent to:
