Broom Street Theater 2012 Script Submissions

web site

Accepted through 4/30; mail scripts/proposals to Heather Renken, c/o BST, 1119 Williamson St., Madison, WI 53704; or email ad@bstonline.org. 347-9738

Broom Street Theater is currently seeking script submissions for its 2012 season.

Broom Street is one of the nation's oldest continuous experimental theater companies and primarily produces original works by local playwrights.

There are openings for seven new plays in the upcoming year. While there are no limitations as to style, length, or subject matter, Broom Street Theater is most interested in experimental works. We pride oursleves in doing all original never before seen work. We are also most interested in work that stretches the imagination beyond what we normally see on stage.

Most of our plays are original, but we have occasionally performed scripts that have been done elsewhere or that are classics, but generally with a new interpretation. Submissions are not limited to local playwrights, but all else being equal we prefer to promote local, regional, or state writers.

If interested, please send either a full script or a proposal to the theater's Artistic Director, Heather Renken. Deadline for submissions is April 30th, 2011.

The plays will be reviewed in a blind reading by a selection committee. Please include a cover sheet with your personal information and how we may contact you. Please remove your name from all other pages.

We will give 2-3 FIRST TIME OR NOVICE PLAYWRIGHTS the opportunity to participate in workshops and the possibility to have your work produced in the 2013 season. Please write on your play or proposal if you would like to be considered for this program.

Scripts and proposals may be e-mailed to ad@bstonline.org or sent by mail to:

Heather Renken, Artistic Director
Broom Street Theater
1119 Williamson Street
Madison, WI 53704

Along with the script or proposal, please indicate whether the author would also like to direct his/her own work or would prefer to have someone else direct.
