So this is an idea that we have been kicking around for some time, but now that we have settled in to our new Theatre space on 45th Street, we are making it possible for anyone with a good play, and for a nominal fee, to have their play produced at Manhattan Rep (and at other theatres in town too! - See below.) We will supply the director, the cast, the rehearsal space, set and props, and we will bring your play to life in Midtown Manhattan where one can invite friends, family, and more to come and see it. And it won't cost an arm and a leg!
For a 10 minute play with 2 to 3 characters:
For Manhattan Rep to put up your production in one of our short play events the fee will be $695.00
For a 11 - 20 minute short play with 1 to 3 characters:
For Manhattan Rep to put up your production in one of our short play events the fee will be $895.00
For a 20 - 35 minute 1 act play with 1 to 4 characters:
For Manhattan Rep to put up your production in one of our short play events the fee will be $1195.00
For a Full - Length play with up to 6 characters:
Fee based on the play and production requirements.
Usually the Budget/Fee for a Full-Length play is 4 to 6 times as much of that of a Short Play due to play requirements, rehearsal time and more.

FESTIVAL PLAY PRODUCTION PROGRAM
ALSO, we are offering this same service if you have a play that has been accepted in to a theatre festival in New York City. For a production fee, we will handle everything from casting to props and costumes, to rehearsal space, to hiring a technician to run the board, and more, and much of the rehearsal will be on a real stage with lights and sound, so that your actors and your production staff will be so well prepared when your team FLIES into the festival to quickly and rushedly handle the Sound and Lights when you load in. ( I once had a friend who had a show in the Fringe years ago. They only finished HALF of their tech in the allotted tech time, so for opening night they had to crash and burn through their tech, open their show while never having done the tech before! Needless to say, it was a nightmare! This definitely won't happen if you work with our team for we will have literally done much of the tech work in advance.)
