Shelterbelt With Love

web site

The Shelterbelt Mission

The mission of the Shelterbelt Theatre (Omaha, Nebraska) is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which to focus the development of original work and to provide for the practical education of writers, performing artists, creative and technical staff, and the general public in the art and science of moving an idea from the mind to the stage.

Script Submissions

We are especially interested in works by local and regional writers!
We will be glad to assist local authors - we can review and critique your play, and set up a reading panel or workshop setting. Just let us know!


We will also be looking for short original scripts for our upcoming love-fest, From Shelterbelt With Love, in Jan/Feb 2014. Short plays dealing with love, loss and relationships are what we need!

Script deadline will be Nov. 1, 2013.

How to Submit Your Script


Please include the following:

  • A letter of inquiry with your contact information.
  • A one page synopsis of your script.
  • A full version of your script; or at the very least, a 10 page selection from your script.
  • 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 getting contacted or 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 automatically give you a 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 definitely contact you.


Email your submission to: submissions@shelterbelt.org

We accept the following types of files:

Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx)
Plain Text (.txt)
Rich Text Format (.rtf)
Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf)

Please don't send Final Draft or Movie Magic Screenwriter documents.
Thank you
