New Jersey Playwrights Contest

William Paterson University

web site

The University Performing Arts Department of William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ announces their Eight Annual NJ Playwrights Contest. This project helps bring new playwrights and their work into focus in the community, the region and the state of New Jersey. This year the competition will have both a musical and a non-musical component. Each consists of two phases. First, three plays and/or three musicals will be selected for staged-readings in the fall of 2011 from all entries received by July 13, 2011. Second, one of these finalists will receive a production in the spring of 2012 in the very flexible Hunziker Black Box Theatre. In addition to the full production, the winner will receive an honorarium commensurate with his/her level of participation. This contest is open to New Jersey residents only. Submissions should include: a cover letter, stating availability of the author for fall 2011 and the performance history of the play or musical; a one-page synopsis of the play or musical; and a resume of the playwright and/or composer.

Submissions should be emailed to
or mailed to
Theatre Series, H 105-B, 300 Pompton Rd.,
William Paterson University,
Wayne, NJ, 07470.

NO PLAYS or MUSICALS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED AT THIS TIME. Requests for scripts & music (including a piano score) and author interviews will be arranged later this summer.
