Shelterskelter seeks Halloween-themed scripts

web site

Shelterbelt Theatre announces its call for scripts for their annual Halloween-themed anthology, Shelterskelter (our tales of horror, suspense, the macabre, and bizarre.)


Deadline for script submission for 2012 is June 1. 

We are looking for NEW scripts for our regular Shelterskelter show. We are also looking for new scripts for a possible "adults only" late night show which would follow the regular show. This is a chance to push some boundaries and experiment with more mature content. In general, scripts for Shelterskelter should be 30 minutes or less in length. Indicate you are submitting for Shelterskelter in the subject line of your email.

Please indicate that your submission is for Shelterskelter in the subject line of your email, and/or on your cover or title page.

Shelterskelter runs in October, featuring short plays dealing with horror, suspense, dark humor, and the macabre. This is not a "Halloween" show, but rather a chance for playwrights to experiment with some darker subject matter, and with suspense. We also look at shorter plays for possible inclusion in one of our other season time slots, so if you have a script that doesn't fit neatly into any specific category, send it to us! Good scripts are always given a lot of attention.


Please EMAIL your script to:

We accept the following types of files: Microsoft Word, Plain Text, Rich Text Format, and Adobe PDF.
Please don't send Final Draft or Movie Magic Screenwriter documents.
Make sure you have a title page at the beginning of your document, with your full name and contact info. Failure to do this may result in playwrights not being contacted or getting properly credited. The title page must be in the same file, not sent as a separate file.

Submission of script(s) does not mean that we will give you an immediate response. If you do not hear from us right away, it just means that we are very, very busy. We are an all-volunteer organization! We make every effort to review all submissions. If your script is considered for the season, we will contact you.
