Moonlit Wings Productions seeks plays or musicals

web site

Moonlit Wings Productions (MWP), celebrated theatre in the National Capital Area seeks new theatre-for-youth plays & musicals for the 2013 Summer Season.

MWP workshops and mounts a total of 8 new theatre-for-youth shows every summer. Each show rehearses for 2 weeks with a professional director, choreographer, & tech director/stage manager and concludes with a public performance at the end of each session. Playwrights are given a thorough production review from the creative team and the chance to debut their work. This is our 6th year in the DC-VA-MD area and our productions consist of two teams "Camp Drama" -- our in-house stage -- and "Broadway Biz" -- our touring group. More at www.moonlitwings.org.

  • Plays or Musicals (straight plays are okay, we do pride ourselves on a well-rounded theatre experience so we will ask to work music into your play)
  • Runtime: 20-40 minutes (Hour long works may be submitted but we will ask for permission to make necessary cuts)
  • LARGE cast, 15 minimum - 35 maximum, ensemble shows preferred, female driven or gender neutral casts encouraged
  • Material suitable for talented performers ages 7-15
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, but sooner is better than later, ideally by the end of March.

Our theme this year is: "All the worlds a stage...Season 6: Global Spotlight" and we are especially seeking shows with any international or worldly influence or material.
