NOTE: A $1 donation is requested with submission but not required.

3rd Annual NFA New Works Festival

The Newburgh Free Academy Drama Department will be accepting ten-minute play submissions for their 3rd annual new play festival hosted by the upper level acting classes. NFA is an at-risk high school located in Hudson Valley, NY. The plays will be performed in our state-of-the-art black box theatre where students run every aspect of the show, including the reading and choosing process.

Guidlines are as follows:

*Only Ten Minutes (or less). 

*Playwright may submit up to two plays only. Please send multiple copies of your work, as the school has limited faculty and staff on how many copies we’re allowed to make. 

*Plays must be unplublished. Recent past or present productions/workshops/readings are okay.

* We prefer plays with no more than three characters. Four is the maximum. There are 23 actors in the troupe (21F/2M). Of course, we cast blind so guys can play female roles and vice-versa. There is no limit on content or themes, however should your work be chosen, the playwright may be asked to rework questionable language or content. Students will NEVER change something without the consent of the playwright. In fact, one of the great things about this project is the opportunity for students  and professional writers to correspond with one another. 

*NO electronic submissions

Send to: 
Newburgh Free Academy
201 Fullerton Ave, Newburgh, NY 12550 
(attention Terry Sandler, Drama)

*Deadline: Post-marked by February 1, 2013. 

Selected plays will be notified early March. 

*$1 suggested donation. In the past, we’ve used our donation money on the purchasing of stage props, costumes, and other theatrical supplies to enhance our new works festival production. Checks made out to: Newburgh Enlarged City Schools. Contact tsandler@necsd.net or terrysandler@hotmail.com for more details.
