Capital Repertory, Albany, NY
Submissions are now being accepted for Capital Repertory Theatre’s NEXT ACT NEW PLAY SUMMIT

Next Act! is an expansion of Capital Repertory Theatre’s commitment to the development of new work, and is designed to complement the Upper Hudson Valley’s recent and future growth explosion in the fields of research and technology.  The summit will directly reflect the theatre’s mission, “to create meaningful theatre generated from an authentic link to the community.”  Next Act! takes place November 2nd thru 4th, 2012 and will feature readings of two never-before produced plays, and special events throughout the weekend.

Capital Rep is particularly interested in scripts that showcase world events as they impact the individual and society, highlighting the common threads that bind the American culture together in a world that is defined more and more by diversity.  The theatre will give preference to character driven scripts that showcase technology’s impact on humanity.

Multi-cultural and ethnically diverse plays welcome.
Comedy and Drama welcome!
(Please do not submit plays about the theatre.)

Eligible plays can not have been previously produced, though previous readings are allowed.  No more than 7 characters.  (Please do not submit works in which actors play multiple roles, unless it is a device used to illuminate generations.)  No musicals.

Agent and non-agent submissions accepted.

Submission Deadline: END OF DAY - Monday July 16, 2012
Playwrights should submit a synopsis, character descriptions and the first 10 pages of their play with a photo/resume and bio.

Email your submission to Margaret Hall, Assistant to the Artistic Director, at mhall@capitalrep.org with NEXT ACT PLAY SUBMISSION in the subject line.

A small stipend and limited travel available for playwrights selected. Electronic submissions preferred. Capital Rep is a professional LORT D theatre, established in Albany in 1981.
