The Mountain Playhouse International Playwriting Contest

web site

The Mountain Playhouse International Playwriting Contest is an annual event with the deadline of December 31st each year.

The submission deadline for the 2015 Playwriting Contest is December 31st, 2014. Mountain Playhouse will stage a public reading of the winning play before the end of 2015, and the author will be awarded a cash prize of $1,000. In addition, should the Mountain Playhouse decide to present a live production of the play, the author will receive royalties.

To submit your entry, you will need to download the Playwriting Contest Agreement, print and sign it, then mail your play with the agreement to 7690 Somerset Pike, P.O. Box 205, Jennerstown, PA 15547.

If you wish to have your script returned after the contest is over, you must enclose a self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage to cover the return.

Type your title and name on the top sheet and do not have your name on the body of the play.

If you include a synopsis, keep it on a separate sheet from the play.

Include a list of characters and, if necessary, explain how 8 actors could perform the show.

Send a loose leaf copy held together by a single binder clip. Single or double sided is your choice, but don't waste time or effort to bind the play any other way as we will take that binding apart when we receive it anyway.

If you are sending your script from an overseas country, please send me an email atwritecomedy@mountainplayhouse.org for special instructions.

Don't forget to download, sign and include the agreement with your play.
