Wide Eyed Productions call for scripts

web site

Wide Eyed Productions will be hosting our third installment of the WINKS Reading Series! This time around we will be focusing exclusively new theatrical works of adapted content! (Meaning it’s is a play that was inspired by other works.)

Wide Eyed Productions is excited to continue its work on new American plays like our recent world premiere production of Dead Special Crabs by Dan Kitrosser and the award winning Animals by Sam Byron. We had such a good response to the previous seasons of readings, we want the fun to continue.

The Double Take Reading Series
A Wide Eyed Look at Theatrical Adaptation

Join us on the second Tuesday of every month at The Drama League where we will feature a twenty-minute segment from three original works by three different writers, which are related to, or inspired by, that month’s theme. At the end of each night the audience will be invited to select their favorite of the evening anonymously. The majority favorite will be named a semifinalist and be invited to submit a full text* to Wide Eyed Productions’ Artistic Board for consideration for our final round.

Two (or three?) overall finalists will be chosen and given a full staged reading of their play at the end of the WINKS series, and one winning text will be chosen based on audience and board votes. This winning text will then be work shopped with intent to produce in an upcoming season.

What you need to know:

· The play does not need to be a World Premiere.
· The play does not need to be a fully completed text when it is initially submitted.
· Musicals will be considered as long as they are submitted with a music sample.
· Directors and casts will be provided by Wide Eyed, but we love it when you have suggestions for people you love to work with!
· Please submit selections of text, treatments, and other support material to submissions.wideeyed@gmail.com subject line, the appropriate theme for your play.
· The full text is not to exceed a 90-minute estimated run time. Semifinalists will be given a deadline for submissions of full texts.
· All submissions must be received by January 15, 2015.

· The Themes are as follows:

-MARCH: Anything But Disney: Adaptations from Fairy Tales from around the world.
-APRIL: Shake it Up: Adaptations from any of the bard's many works.
-MAY: In the News: Adaptations from past or current news stories from all forms of media.
