Virginia Premiere Theatre is continuously seeking new, full-length plays

web site

Virginia Premiere Theatre is continuously seeking new, full-length plays to develop and produce. Play requirements: 5 or less characters, no gratuitous sexuality or nudity. Not considering short one-acts, full scale musicals or published plays. We are considering "pocket musicals" or plays with music. Playwright must be willing to refine script in proactive ensemble approach. Particularly interested in plays from abroad.

Artistic considerations focus on plays of inherent social value, plays with a unique voice and plays with inherent theatricality. We prefer not to review plays that resemble television or film scripts.

Virginia Premiere Theatre believes in the vital importance of the playwright to the American Theatre and to the art form in general. We offer reasonable royalties and guarantees as generally defined by industry standards. Housing, transportation and some rehearsal reimbursement may also be available. Virginia Premiere Theatre makes no attempt to "participate" in future playwright royalties; however, we do ask for your best efforts to ensure future playbill and publication credit. Should a play achieve financial largess, we ask that playwrights consider making a generous donation to the not-for-profit company that gave the play its first push into sunlight.

Please send a synopsis, a letter of inquiry, a biography and sample dialogue to:
Literary Manager
Virginia Premiere Theatre
P.O. Box 84
Foster, VA 23056

Or email inquiries to info@vptheatre.com

Please note that synopses must include: a character breakdown, number of actors required, setting requirements and brief text about the play. If these requirements are not met, your inquiry will not be considered.

Scripts via email not accepted. Please do not call.

VPT reads scripts in their entirety, so response time may be protracted. Because of high volume, we regret that we are unable to return manuscripts so please do not send SASE’s.
