CAMPFIRE THEATRE FESTIVAL 2019

web site

DEADLINE NOVEMBER 30, 2018.

WE ARE ON THE HUNT FOR NEVER-BEEN-PRODUCED SCRIPTS BY EMERGING PLAYWRIGHTS.

We define “emerging” as a playwright that has not had more than two professional productions or a published script.

"Never been produced" means plays that have had small readings and workshops are fine, but plays that have been previously produced or published are not accepted.

If you are unsure if you are eligible, please email us at contact@campfiretheatrefestival.com with details.

We will accept full length plays that are more than sixty pages, less than one hundred and twenty pages, and may have an intermission.

We currently cannot accept musicals. We can accept children's plays. We will accept plays of any genre. Each playwright may submit ONE play. If you have been selected for Campfire before, please observe a one year hiatus between the year you were selected and the next year you submit.

WE ARE ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR TWO PROGRAMS:

OUR STAGED READING SERIES AND OUR SPARK PROGRAM.

The Staged Reading Series accepts plays by emerging playwrights and offers them a fully staged reading at our festival in Boise, Idaho in September 2019.

IF YOU ARE SELECTED:

Your play will be assigned a cast and director.

You will receive a prize of $100 for a selected full-length play.

Campfire Theatre Festival is not currently able to provide playwright travel stipends for the Staged Reading Series; however, if a selected playwright can provide their own travel to Boise for the festival, all efforts will be made to assist with housing.

The Spark Program accepts plays by emerging playwrights for a twenty-hour workshop process that culminates in a seated reading at the festival in Boise, Idaho in September 2019.

IF YOU ARE SELECTED:

Your play will be assigned a cast, a dramaturg and director.

You will receive a prize of $100 for a selected full-length play.

You will receive airfare and housing for a week in Boise, Idaho.

SUBMISSION CAPS AND DEADLINE:

The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2018. We will accept the first 300 full-length plays and close submissions when we receive that many, even if it's before the deadline.

THERE IS NO FEE TO SUBMIT FOR CAMPFIRE THEATRE FESTIVAL.

ANY PLAYS SUBMITTED BEFORE NOVEMBER 1 WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

ANY PLAYS SUBMITTED NOT-BLINDED WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
